You really found some breathtaking settings! These are all very appealing but #1 blows me away with the combination of fall color and the framing of the falls. I think the last one is also very storng but on my monitor the very bottom part of the image seems unnaturally bright compared with the adjacent sections.

p.1 #5 · Portland Oregon Water Falls and the Surrounding Areas


Side1Cinci,

Last one, as Phil said, was from Smith Rocks Oregon. You'll need to visit this place, it is actually in Bend, Oregon. I was there during sunset, but I bet you sunrise might be better since the sun rises might glow the rocks and might be very special. As I said, not much time for me on this visit, 5 days in many places. Bend is a pretty nice little town, lots of nice restaurants and nice people. I would not hesitate to go there again.

Phil, the bottom part of #5 could be a bit bright compared to the rest because I wanted to contrast the rest to the sky a bit more than it was actually.

Thanks for the comments.

Actually on both of my monitors, the Dell U2711 and the Apple Thunderbolt, the last one, Smith Rocks, the brightness balance on top and bottom looks just right...to me.

Thanks for all comments.

Smith Rock, north or Redmond in a little town called Terrebonne. If recently the time would have been about 6:30ish

Nice shots here. Welcome to our cozy little corner of the US.

p.1 #11 · Portland Oregon Water Falls and the Surrounding Areas


My computer is currently being upgraded...so I can't get to the image data, but I think Roman is right...around that time 6-7pm. Got there around 5pm, hung around, took bunch of images, walked around, but the special ones did not come until after the sun almost went down, so be patient and wait...

If I did not left a little early, i would have captured even better colors of the sunset, when the sun disappeared totally under the horizon, so I need to stay until dark next time

I stayed at a small nearby town, Bend, about 30-45 minutes away. Nice town, great foods, and especially great was the Thump coffee in the morning. If you go there, get the fresh pastries on the counter, not in the front shelves. Also, try Cafe Yumm for lunch or dinner, love the sauce!

Let me know if you want to know more.

Although the water is a bit more blue than I'm adjusted to for those local sights, the shots look pretty good. The first one is probably my favorite.

Nice stuff.

Should have tried more beer however my body tolerates coffee better. Just read USA Today on the 10 best places for coffee, Oregon is on that list.
