Wow... well I didn't see that coming.. I guess I'd better write something here :).

I wasn't going to shoot anything for this challenge - I was a little busy with uni (school) during the week. But the night before this challenge closed I remembered this waterfall and decided to throw the tripod and camera in my bag before I left the house on the way to class. It was shot really late in the day - after sunset actually - hence the spooky feel some commented on, but that let me use a longer shutterspeed than usual. The only problem is that this waterfall is in a relatively secluded spot downtown and there were a couple of fairly unsavoury characters sitting with their bottles and paper bags near by. I guess they were fairly well occupied with said bottles, as they barely looked in my direction the whole time. In all I managed to get in about a dozen longish exposures before I had to run off to catch a bus.

Thanks everyone for all the votes and comments.

Cheers.

I went searching for this some time ago only to find BCC had turned it off due to recent water restrictions. Great photo.

Just an amazing shot very well done. I have to learn to take waterfalls with time exposure. I guess snap shots just dont quite cut it.

Beautiful, tasteful shot. Nothing to dislike - and even the flat lighting doesn;t matter.

A great image with a pleasing dark and dank feel. The water flow adds the contrasting ingredient to the general darkness. Good job. Bumping up.

Very nice silky effect on the water ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/23/2005 08:32:26 PM
Beautiful lighting, color, and focus. I almost think the exposure was a bit too long, the lack of any detail in the pool is slightly disturbing. Pretty shot, in any case.
