It looks like a magical landscape. I like the branch across top.

Also very good processing - it feels like you can hear the roar of the water here.

Tomas Hart Benton armed with a camera would have been proud of a similar result. The limb left center draws my eye into the maelstrom of water throwing the view right back in my face. IMO, Printed on aluminum sheet would up the ante but what a pleasure just to view this supremely Special image. Thanks. Tony

Stunning image, years since I've been to Aysgarth, another place to add to the ever growing list.

Excellent mono, almost past it by but decided to linger a while, the longer I look the more there is to see and like. The noise from the fall is deafening

Yes, a very dynamic photo, with the strong frame of the branch and a good feeling of movement from the water. The b and w conversion allows the viewer to concentrate on the interesting textures ad shapes in the photo

Very effective take on Aysgarth with just the right amount of 'movement' in the water

I have a number of shots taken from virtually the same position in the summer and that branch when covered in leaves was a major issue - now it is an asset.

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Wow, that's a stunner, love the way the roaring water mimics the branch

The branch is the compositional clincher for me taking this superb landscape into an even higher dimension.

Thanks all for kind thoughts and comments on this one... Eventually reached for the fisheye here as it became clear to me that the branch really helped bring alive the composition and needed to be fully in the frame... Having had a good chance to look long and hard at it, I've finally started to work out why that might be... Not only does it direct the eye into the image, and provide a natural frame for the shot, it also repeats itself as a shape in (at least) two other points in the image... Firstly, as Maria spotted, in the waterfall itself, and secondly as a mirror image in the rock beneath... What's interesting is that I didn't consciously see either of these relationships at the time (I was more consciously looking at the outer edges of the frame, and trying to generate an energy flow through the image)... But I was aware that this specific composition (vs a number I'd tried inches and fractions of inches either side) worked the best... Interesting in a conscious vs subconscious noticing kind of a way...

Thanks for the Tomas Hart Benton reference Tony... Hadn't come across his stuff before... Had a good look at it... Super flowing energy lines... Really unusual... Must print some more stuff on aluminium as you say... It tends to be quite expensive to do via third party printers here, but always like the deep tones of the results...

Spot metering? Strange! Love the shot though!

Hi Paul

Thanks very much for this... Yes... I know what you mean... Spot metering... Always done it... Look at a scene, work out by sight what looks like might be the mid point exposure wise, and meter off it... Prefer it to asking the camera to take an average... Just feel more personally connected...

A great loop of flow in this engaging and energetic composition, the limb of the tree directs one back to the falls and holds attention for the viewer cleverly. Great tones and processing. Bravo 😊

Agreed, this frames it and takes the eye into the falls.
