I’m afraid I’m late again and having to post this week’s Friday image on a Saturday. I had intended to get everything read for yesterday but by the time I got home it was just too late. Hopefully this image is one that you like and which will make up for the delay.

The image was captured at Malham in the Yorkshire Dales (England) a few weeks back. The waterfall (which looks a little tropical) is called Janet’s Foss and is on the path up to Gordall Scar. I also thought it would be nice to show the starting image below prior to making any adjustments. I think this demonstrates how important post capture editing is to bring out the best in your photography.

Have a great weekend.

If you would like to know how I edited this image I have added it as a short free tutorial on my website (https://www.lenscraft.co.uk/lightroom-start-to-finish-janets-foss/).

Have fun

    I really like the way the two stones act as stepping-stones for your eyes and take you smack bang into the beauty of the waterfall.

      Thanks. That was the intention. I also liked the way the thin twig balances on the central foreground rock. At first you don’t notice it but if you remove it from the image it feels that it’s lost something.

    I also like the way the stones lead one into the image, lovely shot a place I should love to visit Malham.

      If you haven’t been to Malham it’s well work a day’s visit. If you are a walker and don’t mind a bit of a scramble, climb the waterfall at Gordale Scar. It’s amazing at the top. I must try to find and post an image.
