Title: South Falls
Photographer: Kyle Kephart
— “South Falls in the beautiful Silver Falls State Park makes for a beautiful image throughout the year. In the fall, this composition really shines and jumps out at you as you walk the trail around the area. The trees and foliage frame the waterfall itself really nicely without you having to do much work.
I decided to go for the best framing I could get by placing the tree trunk on the right side of the image making a border out of that side and using a graduated filter just to darken the left side a bit to draw the eye in to the center of the image where the eye can venture up to the beautiful soft light in the forest above and pool of water below. The waterfall also wasn't blurred to oblivion which many make the mistake of doing here as it has really nice sheets of water that are coming down creating wonderful textures.
It is such an awesome spot in central Oregon that many of the locals visit regularly, but it is far enough from the beaten path that it isn't typically overrun with tourists. Plenty of great photo opportunities to be had here as this is just one of about 5 great waterfalls inside the state park!”
