this is an excellent image..the idea of making it monochrome did the work....very abstract in nature....excellent mood achieved and good composition too....

Gururaja !

This is an amazing image to say the least !! The power of the water fall is beautifully brought out by those tiny trees in the frame. White and black on left and right side of the frame seem to excellently balance the image. The image appears to be a fine piece of art and should print very well - large one will nicely decorate a hall.

Congratulations on this one !!

It has a very unique painting sort of feel to it. Really shows the feel of the force of water. Amazing feel to it.

What a powerful image you have posted! this is an amazing capture. To me, this image should be named Power

Gururaj, I must say this is an excellent image Congrats! Highly dynamic image of water. This has come out very well due to appropriate shutter speed (not the usual milky effect). Great composition too. One can feel the quality of picture at thumbnail itself.

I am overwhelmed! I was browsing through my 2006 images of Jog Falls with Aravind, who suddenly told me to post this image. It's really amazing that just then he said, it should be a wall hanging, and Ganesh posted that comment. I am touched. This is the lone tree at Jog Falls, taken from British Bungalow side. Sony DSC-H2, 12x zoom. Thanks again.

Although, I attempted at monochrome as suggested by Aravind, but it was not saved in that format. You can still see the green branches!

Shutter was 1/200, and aperture 2.8. I set ISO to auto, hence is 80. Thanks again for all these comments! Certainly motivating!
