The Wedding by enunez The Wedding by enunez
Taken in Yosemite, a little over a week ago after 2 days of continuous rain. This particular morning was still drizzling, and the mist in the valley was playing its magic. This is Bridalveil falls shot from the tunnel view.

I hope you like it!

Nikon D700
ISO200 4secs @ f/16; 155mm

First off let me start by saying that is a spectacular image. The mist rising from the valley floor gives the image a magical quality. And the trees rising through the mist are a major point of interest in themselves. The composition works very well with 2/3s rock face and 1/3 valley floor and the waterfall being directly in the center works well here. My only concern is the colour balance it is maybe a little too reddish and I would much prefer to see a more neutral hue in this image. Although this is more a matter of taste than anything else and I would imagine that you intentionally processed the image this way.

most definitely an amazing shot, the only reason i didn't give full stars is because i feel that nothing is perfect, and thus not even this shot deserves a perfect score.

what works so well here is the mystery, all that fog that seems to be flowing around the trees, hiding them and hiding even that huge waterfall. but also the sense of immense scale, the huge rock cliffs way of in the distance. the sense of scale is helped by the 1/3 trees and 2/3 rock walls.

truly an excellent piece, the only slight downside is the fog kinda blocking the waterfall, but that adds to the mood again.

Amazing, I bet you could hear those falls for MILES around. The mist around the falls it almost ghost-like, giving this a surreal feeling.
