Dziki Wodospad, Poland

February 13, 2018

As I'm going scouting the weather is usually pretty dull and flat (that's my luck). That day sky was overcast and it occasionally snow showered, but I didn't saw any direct sunlight at all. I decided to focus on one of the waterfalls in Karkonosze (Giant Mountains), called Dziki Wodospad (Wild Waterfall). I ended up with few compositions, of which one you can see here. I'll gladly hear your thoughts - what do you think? :)

Exciting location, with a lot of movement and dreamy atmosphere. The shot is excellent - as you yourself seem to thing some sun would have brought more excitement to the landscape scene.

I see that your left may have been under exposed, and that when you pushed it in post processing you got color noise (I do that too)

So I love the right side of the image more than the left side.

Good lines, and nice brick wall.

Hi Leif! Thanks for all your thoughts and suggestions.

As you mentioned, the scene would have different (and possibly more dramatic) look with some other light. I’ll definitely try to capture it again with different conditions, though it might be tough. The frame (and the look) is pointed almost exactly to the south, so the waterfall itself is almost always in shade. As far as I know, the only moment it can get direct sunlight is during summer sunrise. Will check that out. ;)

Regarding the left/right side of the picture. I tend to like the right side more, too. And speaking about the noise - it may be actually the snow, which was falling at the moment. You can’t almost see it on the right side, due to the fact it was covered with more trees than the left side of the frame. You can see some white streaks on the dark water and the white foam formed by long exposure on the left side of the frame. Is that what you were referring to? Or do you see some noise in other parts of picture?
