Param..a very fine shot indeed - this is a good example of where the loss of IQ at a smaller F-stop (F32) is pretty much meaningless.  I've heard this issued raised before and though it is true IQ lessens beyond say F10 or so in some cases where shutter speed is shorter.  With this one it is somewhat irrelevant as the longer exposure absorbs more definition.  On a side note (not being contradictory but to end off the possibility of greater diffraction at such a small F stop) did you consider using an ND on this shot to use a wider F-stop vs. F32?  Possibly dropping down the ISO to 50 to get additional slow down if using a wider Av.  Again, just a thought.

Waterfall Autumn

That is beautiful. Beautiful colors and beautiful composition. What camera/lens combination did you use? Any post processing?

Shot with 5D3 + 70-200 f2.8 IS II
4 sec at f/32 ISO 100 200mm
Basic post in lightroom 4 to boost the oranges and greens, then applied some filters in color efex pro. I think i used pro contrast + sunlight filters on this one.

Thanks param for the explanation. You made the best out of the scene. Again: good eye!

Thank you!

Thanks, Rev. Agree with your thoughts, the subject matter could have a bearing on the relevance of lens diffraction. A wide landscape may show a more perceivable softness at smaller f-stop than a shot like this.  Would have certainly tried to use an ND and wider f-stop, if only I had my bag with me  :) Good tip on the 50 ISO, it’s a new feature for me on the 5D3 and admittedly did not think of using it.

Was this an original of yours? If so I have the feeling someone may have copied it  :-\

Cheers Brian

I know this is a Canon forum but I'm hoping there is a bit of leniency on the photos, because well.... they aren't Canon. Nor Photoshopped or manipulated for that matter. They're just good old fashion film landscape photography.

I think they are great. Specially the first one. I have a question for you. Did you intentionally post R G B pictures?

Am I missing something here? Isn't everything out of my camera AND on the web RGB? As opposed to CMYK(?), which is for print work....no?

Such great photos 8)

Renegade Runner- lovely waterfall with bridge; is that in the Pacific Northwest?

Sporgon- really like your 3rd shot; nice water reflections and great leading lines!

shutterwideshut-  Wow! so beautiful and peaceful...unusual colors. I need to get out more with my 7D and EF-S 10-22mm :)

rpt is referring to the first image being Red, the second Green, the last Blue. Not RGB/CMYK. Don't worry this took me a second read too.

Those colours weren't intentional but I always try to use a mix of colours when posting images. They just happen to be my recent favourites.
