Silverton Falls texture

The texture of falling water matches the rock faces surrounding Silverton Falls in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada

Sil­ver­ton Falls textures

Speak­ing of shut­ter speeds and water tex­ture, for this image I used a fast shut­ter speed (1/640th sec at f/8) to freeze the motion of the falling water. It’s inter­est­ing to me that you can see how the water was accel­er­at­ing as it fell — the tex­ture gets blur­rier near the bot­tom of the fall. I also like how the tex­ture of the water matches the pat­terns in the rock faces sur­round­ing the falls.

For print­ing this photo, I tried to make sure to retain detail in the shad­ows and in the high­lights while main­tain­ing the high-contrast nature of the scene. In the final print I did notice the high­lights wash out just a bit in one spot of water (far right, about 2/3rds down), and when I checked the image on my mon­i­tor it also showed almost no detail, although it was not quite clipped. Funny how I didn’t notice it as a prob­lem on-screen, but it stood out in the print imme­di­ately. Les­son learned…
