The Beautiful Oneida Falls

     
  The Beautiful Oneida Falls  
     
I have seen a huge number of waterfalls. And while all are great to see, not all are what I consider to be photogenic.
 
Oneida Falls in Ricketts Glen State Park has ended up in my galleries more than most, reflecting my opinion of its beauty. With a low water level and a precarious setup, I was able to shoot from behind the falls this day. The result is one of the less-normal falls shots I have captured.
 
Aiding the unusual look of this image is the ultra-wide focal length lens used to capture it. What you don't see is the photographer that walked into my frame and setup for his own shooting. I 'shopped him out.
 
When shooting waterfalls, the sky is often not wanted in the frame. When shooting with angles of view this wide, it is hard to keep the sky out of the frame. By shooting at a downward angle, I was able to reduce the amount of over-bright sky remaining in the frame.
