Back to your regularly scheduled waterfall photos! haha  I’m starting to think that perhaps I should mix things up a bit.  I’ll try to grab some mountain or tree or beach shots soon, mmmkay?  In the meantime, enjoy this little gem from Ithaca’s Treman Park. 🙂

I opted for Black and White for this one for a few reasons.  First, it was taken before the leaves really started to turn beautiful shades of autumn…so the scene had that awkward, in between, non-harmonious color scheme.  Also, if you read my tips on Seeing In Black and White, you’ll know that shapes and repeating patterns usually convert to monochrome well.  In this case, the fallen log and the waterfall shapes complimented each other perfectly, while simultaneously creating a nice line into the frame.

Haven’t read the Learning to See in Black and White article?  If you’re an iPhone/iPad/etc user, you can read it in one of the older issues of Light & Landscapes, a free magazine through the newstand app.  If you’re not, I uploaded it into my Tips & Tutorials page.  To access it, all you have to do is sign up for the newsletter and in the confirmation email, we send you the link/password to access our latest tips write-ups!

Plus…you know…we have a holiday give-away planned (when I finally get around to writing the next newsletter) and if you GET the newsletter, then you’ll have the opportunity to enter the drawing!  Double win!  Free tips and stuff! 🙂

Oh…and before I forget…the photo info: f/11, iso 100, 0.8 sec, 10 mm

    Black and white really works here due to the very marked chiaroscuro. Impressive work, Shannon. 🙂 Thanks for posting it!

      Thank you for the feedback! This image definitely benefited from the extra drama. 🙂

    Beautiful. Waterfalls aren’t easy and this is stunning.

    Oh the symmetry and beautiful tonal range.

    Oh, this is beautiful, the parallel between the tree and waterfall is very well composed!
    Love it, have a good weekend, Ron
