Linville falls, NC, USA.

Upper falls.



Lower falls (note woman crossing at bottom)



Roaring fork falls portrait. (regret after coming home. I wish I hadn't cut off the plant in the foreground).




Roaring fork falls, landscape.


Dugger's creek falls, portrait. Pretty small at 15-20 ft but quite scenic as it was walled in by boulders on the sides.





Duggers creek falls, landscape.


C&C always welcome.

Ska.sm100. Would have been worth posting those in Open Views if you wanted C&C. They are worthy of their own post I think. First of all, what a fantastic location. The last two are disorienting at first - like miniature falls about a foot high! But that is very cool actually. They all have some very nice points - very nice. I could see how all might have been improved but any suggestions might be impractical and almost certainly wouldn't be something I would have thought of while out there, panting after the walk.

I'll leave it there, in case the invite to C&C is just something in your signature!

Paul, a few years back when I was still more of a beginner than I am now, I used to post in open views and rarely (if ever) got any C & C. Discouraged, I stopped posting in open views and that's become a habit. Nowadays I almost exclusively post in TV's only. The rare comment that I get makes me happy. Sometimes my pics have been selected in the POTW gallery without even a single comment against that pic.

But that's totally fine by me. I'm hear to learn and contribute what I can.

I did a day trip with a buddy along a very small section of the blue ridge parkway (America's most scenic highway!) and got about 10 pics that I was satisfied with. I posted them into TV's, as usual.

Anyway, my request for C&C is quite valid and true so feel free.

Haha... Yes, you are not alone in love of Themed Views over Open Views. And of course once you start I understand it is diffcult to move back because it feels like you need to have something really special. Personally I just like getting the feedback, even if it is no feedback, and I like the chatter too.

I'll just say that when I saw the first Dogger's Creek Falls picturemy first impression was "What is it?" Then I worked it out, and wondeted whether you might have shot from a higher perspective or closer to therock to get a bit more reflection in. And if that wasn't possible or just didn't work, I feel the picture already has enoughstuff in and could maybe benefit from losing the "nothing happening" bottom below the larger stones - which also (coincidentally - I only noticed this after thinking the above) would create a little path into the picture from the bottom right corner, that draws the eye nicely to the falls.


Edit: To clarify I am talking about the stones under water, bottom right - so not a radical crop (although some consider anything not 2x3 a mightily radical crop and I respect that).

Yeah, I see what you mean. I could lose the foreground (underwater pebbles).
It was about 12C and I didn't have water proof shoes. I stood on the one rock sticking out of the water and it was an unstable one. I needed to balance the tripod on this one rock on which I too was standing and scared of dropping the camera into the water. So I positioned myself so that if I do fall, I'll manage to keep the camera out of the water even if I get wet.

So, the only way to get closer would have been to zoom in and I'd have lost the walls that were integral to the shot, I felt.
