Challenge: Your Corner of the World II (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Location: Thingvellir, Iceland.
Date: Oct 2, 2005
Aperture: 22
ISO: 100

Classic shot of a beatiful waterfall in Thingvellir, Iceland.

I used a circular polarizing filter to get rid of some reflections on the surface of the water. Then I stopped down to f/22 to get everything in focus and also to get a nice smooth texture on the waterfall.

Post processing includes: converting from RAW, minor cloning, resizing and sharpening.

Lovely waterfall and general composition. The plant life does take away a little bit from the overall scene.

A very tense composition that is almost impossible to view as a whole. I really like the lower part but the upper half somehow doesn't catch me.

Beautifull scene, I realy like the misty look on the waterfall. ND Filter?
Too bad that the sky is blown out, but that's nitpicking.
