Work in progress

So today I went to that same location again, but I ended up with a completely different composition.

This was a tricky one, though, because with the splashing water droplets kept landing on the polarizer all the time and I had to wipe them away constantly between shots. There's significant blur in various areas in the frames I shot, but I managed to stack them so they cancel each other out.

I don't consider this image finished yet as far as editing is concerned, I'm not sure what's amiss but maybe after a good night's sleep I'll have an idea.

Fantastic moody waterfall shot Thorsten, excellently composed.
Maybe a little bit to calm red and green colors on leaves and moss.

Thanks Radisa! What do you mean by 'calm'?

To decrease saturation :) sorry

I guess you know why.
Due to the balance with the upper part of the photo, and that processing would not be so noticeable. You can also clone this cable - wire in the sky :)
Everything is in details!

the cable wire seems to be a skinny foreground branch it does kind of lead to nowhere

Yeah, matter of fact this was the first time in a while I cranked saturation up instead of down in quite a while. I should've known that never works out ;-) Thanks for the pointer with the branch!

At first glance looks like some kind of wire to me :)

super jealous great image its nice you were able to semi avoid the triangle of nothing in the sky's dead space it has a nice gradual falloff. i like the bold fore ground and the background falloff/softening

Thanks Joseph! There was a bit of mist, which certainly helped with the falloff. I have a video on this particular shoot in the works, so you may get an idea what the area actually looks like.

nice can't wait to see it

New edit uploaded, I left the branch in after fixing the exposure in the sky.
