Falls of the Shadows by RS-foto Falls of the Shadows by RS-foto
#Edit:
Update with slightly better version and more detail in the shadows



Original Description:
_______________________________________________

Well here's little something taken with my new toy, Tokina 10-17mm f/3,5-4,5 AT-X DX Fish-eye lens.

We found these industrial falls of Kellokoski almost by an accident with ~ageofloss when returning from our annual trip to the national park of lake Päijänne. We decided to take a random exit on the freeway to take some photos when I noticed the sign 'Kellokoski' and remembred there being some kinda rapids / falls. Small world ;)

I decided to make it a HDR since the foreground was shaded and there was huge contrast with the sky involved.

I hope ya like it! :slow:

Wow!

Amazing composition, juxtaposition, everything.

I don't think I could be this successful with flowing water when doing an HDR. Fantastic HDR! Definitely a favorite. :)

To be honest I wasn't sure what to expect from Photomatix with the water but luckily it turned out pretty nice =)

I am loving this shot. I love the wide angle shot and the contrast between the water and the sky. What type of filter did you use?

As many others have said, this shot is absolutely beautiful! The angle is wonderful and the water has been captured perfectly. Nice work!!

The house reminds me of a grinning big, squat critter with antennas that has settled down there by the falls. I think it's the round fisheye distortion that makes it look somehow alive and organic. The unusual perspective adds to this fantasy-like feel. And I like the hues of the sky and the water, both going from white to deep blue - HDR was a great choice here :]

Khehe, cool. :) Usually I write more constructive critique, but people of your caliber, who get tons of faves and comments, don't ever seem to reply. So... I just comment like that to less known deviants. :)

Yeah It's gotten pretty hard to keep track on all comments and favs, but i always read every comment and try to reply. Favs are harder, they usually tend to pile up so much it's almost impossible to say thanks to everyone, which is a shame..
