I generally donít do verticals, the camera position is very awkward for me because it is hard to see the exposure settings in the viewfinder and the lcd display which is already too small is made smaller for verticals. I find it easier to shoot landscape and crop for vertical since most verticals are for web anyway.
But if I think I may print it, I want all my pixles, and waterfalls are one of the few vertical landscape subjects I encounter. So for this one I mounted the camera vertically and composed as best I could. It took a 35mm to get the full width so that dictated the focal length.
When I got home and processed it, I did not like the result. My screensaver action just crops all images 1800 pixels wide. So when I tried it as a screen saver, it got cropped automatically and all of a sudden the image was transformed and I liked the horizontal so much better. So I decided to show it here as a sort of object lesson. Now I wish I had taken a landscape view of this scene.
I cropped to 5x4, an aspect ratio that is ok for verticals, but not one I like for landscapes. Had I taken this on purpose I might have used a 50mm for the landscape shot.
