p.1 #1 · Iguaçu Falls - Brazil


Congratulations to Fred Miranda for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 29 votes - View Previous Winners


Hi everyone,
These pictures taken during my recent trip to "Iguaçu Falls", located in Foz do Iguaçu, Paraná - Brazil.
I had never been there before but this place was on my bucket-list.

The Cataratas do Iguaçu (Iguaçu Falls) runs right along the border of Brazil and Argentina. The view is breathtaking. If you stay in the "Hotel das Cataratas", located inside the National Park, you are allowed to visit the falls at any time of the day. So, after about 6:00pm, I was the only one there! It was a terrific experience for me. Keep in mind that you and your gear will get drenched. I had to dry my lens constantly from the water spray...

The weather was mostly cloudy during the 3 days I was there...but for one sunset, the light finally passed through. I had about 10 minutes and was able to capture a few pictures. (Single RAWs, no bracketing)

I have yet to see these Falls in my travels, but hope to one day soon. I can see why they are breathtaking.

Excellent Fred, #1 for me. I like the lower left corner mini falls as it adds much to the shot.

I really like both images. I agree that the composition is better in the first shot but I prefer the second because it conveys the magnitude of the area.

Both are beautiful Fred. Great light in these. I'm not sure I love the thin wisp on the left edge of #1, but that's a minor nit.

Those are super photos Fred. Are they all single exposures? That looks like an amazing place. I'm glad your camera gear survived the moist spray. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Fred,

Wow... what sweet shots! You really nailed it, and it was worth the constant lens cleaning to get these. It's hard to choose between one of the other, I like the vertical shot a lot, but the wider view in #2 is really special along with a bit more drama in the sky.

Way to go, Fred! You must have had a great time, thanks for sharing it with us in such a spectacular way. BTW, this lets me ask a question I've been meaning to do for a few days. Why are there some posts where I can't find the "like" sign? 'cause I sure you have liked to "like" it...
