Waterfall Wednesday

Over on Google+, photographers have gotten together using hashtags to create daily themes. This idea has been around forums and flickr for years.  However, on Google+, it has been taken to a whole new level.  Eric Leslie is the keeper of the Google+ daily theme lists which currently has over 70 different themes.  If you are a photographer, I am sure you could find a theme or two to join.  I contribute to about a half dozen each week including #WaterfallWednesday (to create a linkable hashtag on Google+, you put a pound sign (#) in front of words which must not contain spaces.  Just like on Twitter).

Last week, I shared this photo of a fisherman at the foot of Ithaca Falls for Waterfall Wednesday.

This week, I will be sharing this HDR image of Ithaca Falls. I used a set of five photos spread out over a 5 stop range from -2 to +2.  Without this set of photos, the falls would have been properly exposed with the cliff wall in total darkness.

Next week, I think I will complete the Ithaca Falls trilogy with another HDR image combining the falls, Fall Creek and another fisherman on a stunningly beautiful autumn morning.

If you are on Google+, come join in on the daily photo themes.  If you are not on Google+, why aren’t you? 😀

    OK, Google+ scares me! LOL
    I spent ten minutes over there one day and was so incredibly confused! That was back when it was just getting started though…maybe I just couldn’t envision how it would work.
    Here I am stepping away from Twitter, and stepping back from FB so I can devote more time to blogging and photography, do I really want to get entrenched over there? Opinion please.

    That last waterfall image….WOW!!! Magestically beautiful!!!!

    I’m with KD…Google+ completely confused me and I am also not sure I want/need another technology item taking up more time than it should. Sigh…yes, even I as write this I realize how old I sound… 😉


    • Thank you, I really like the last one as it goes beyond the photo into the realm of artwork like a painting.

      LOL You old fuddy-duddy! See my reply to KD’s comment. As I said, only you can determine if G+ is something you wish to use. Like anything, you’ll get back as much as you put into it. We could all Hangout together there.

    I’m echoing everyone else here now, but I do love that last image – really spectacular. I haven’t even peeked at Google+, and can’t decide if I want to!

    These are great Scott. I particularly like the last one very much. Such color and depth really makes these photos pop.
