Photographer's Note

This waterfall (see Workshop Photo) was my last post until I had to drop out from the Trek Earth forum for a few months due to family crises. I intended to complete this New York series many months ago, but better late than never. The WS photo was from the front view of this amazing waterfall near Ithaca, New York, the home of Cornell University. This amazing waterfall is in Robert H. Treman State Park. The locals highly recommended this waterfall over the more popular nearby Buttermilk Falls. I wanted to turn back to visit Buttermilk Falls, but I missed a turn and got caught up in the Ithaca road construction and we needed to find a motel while we still had time. This photograph was taken from the east side of the falls (on the right side of the WS photo). I used a circular polarizer and a 3X ND filter, with a tripod of course. The "Sharpening Police" will probably write me a citation for this one, but I refuse to buckle under pressure. Waterfall photos are supposed to be slightly soft. I want the water to look like water, not over-sharpened strands of spaghetti.
