does work or doesnt? and what about the water? Id say compositionally I prefer this to the other, it just annoys me about the water being so cold. If I adjust the white balance, it effects the other 75% of the photo too much.
Thats a beauty man, not really much to criticize accept that the main falls at the back might be too central and the compo may have been better if it was on the right third but I don't know what else was around so you may have made the best of the situation.
Yeah it was prity much just bush either side of me, I dont think I need to be that anal about the rule of thirds, if you really want to get into it, the photo is actually broken up into thirds from side to side with the bush, cliff then bush again... its not exact but it has balance which is what the rule of thirds achieves anyway. I would see no need to place the waterfall on the right third or whatever. Im not so into following rules as such, just what looks good, you know!
True, the photo works well as is I was just saying what I would have done if I was there and if it was possible to do it. Yeah I say rule of thirds but it isn't, it's just a guide which works with a lot of my shots but with my Mt. Tongariro shots the centered version looks better than the one using rule of thirds.
