_____Random Info
   Did I mention I love the Valley of Neath and it's many waterfalls? Haha, by now most would guess I assume for this is the third deviation belonging to my welsh waterfall series and the second one from the Valley of Neath. This is one of many compositions I shot of this waterfall and I guess all of them were pretty nice I still decided on this one because I loved the trees on the right side and the rock formations to much to go closer to the falls leaving them outside the margins.

   Residing on the riverbanks listening to the flow of the water gently streaming downhill really is the best sonic backdrops to take pictures. It's utter tranquility and by far not as stressing as doing coastal shots or bigger waterfalls which is far more thrilling not knowing if your gear is gonna make it. Either way, hope you like the shot.

   Note: I edited this on a regular Acer Laptop so I'm not quite sure about the tonalities and color of the image since Acer monitors aren't the best for editing. So I'd appreciate people to tell me if I got things right just by judging the histogram. :D

Lovely shot. Reminds me of Scwd yr Eira in Brecon. :)
Well it's only about 5 miles away from Ddwli. ;)

Damn, I must have missed it when I went the other day then. ><
It's another river though but in the same valley.

Oh okay. Well, I shall have a look for it if I go again then. Thanks!

:stare: Vowels! I need them... aside from that, this is a great picture! I can't see anything wrong with the colors...
Seems like welsh is all about consonants though. :D

Klasse, das beste bis dato! Der tiefe Winkel ist wirklich gut, und schön das man trotz der 3s Belichtung noch viel von den Steinen sieht. Btw. warst du auch am Sgwd y Pannwr?
