“First time I visited Silver Falls State Park in the fall. I’m glad I made the trip as it felt so magical to be there and experience fall color. This was taken after several days of rain so the water was really flowing!”

    I think you have a good eye. This could have been just another waterfall shot but the position of the falls within the frame, the angle of the top and bottom of the falls and the radiating whitewater at the bottom make it a compelling photo. It draws the eye well. If the framing or the angle of the shot had been any different it would have been a much less interesting image. It’s a very subtle approach and doesn’t rely on melodrama or cartoonish jacked up colors.
    It’s an image one can learn a great deal from if one looks carefully.
