Daily Deviation

Given 2014-11-06
The human in this photograph gives a good idea how massive this waterfall really is. The contrast, shadows and angle create a really strong mood.

"What a great B&W" I would like to start my review with. It has drama, the human standing on the edge of a powerful waterfall. He/she nicely stands out at the lighter grey. The light is great, all those sparkling droplets. The spray at the top. A very nice range from black to white.
Perhaps the framing could place the waterfall a bit to the right, the dark part at the right seems to be a bit too large for a perfect composition. The line of movement and view would seam to be stronger then.
Still, a great job you've done.
What do you think?

Seeing the miniature I first thought of Caspar Friedrich.. the monumental nature and human amidst.. but it's a powerful and unique work of its own. Mesmerizing..

The person stood off to one side I think makes this amazing image (it would be stunning without him/her but now I have a true sense of scale it is all the more magnificent for it!).
