Hand-eye co-ordination

I recently read a post at Digital Photography School which provided 10 tips on improving your landscape photography. For the most part these were useful, however, a few of them were not practical when the photographer is pressed for time.

On a visit to Niagara Falls State Park last week I happened to notice this pattern while doing my best to keep up and at the same time unobtrusively capture a few shots. A momentary pause, split-second composition, and a flick of the finger resulted in the shot below. ABC allowed opportunity to meet preparation.

Hele mooie foto Rick en deze zwart/wit versie is dan ook een geweldig item.
Heel mooi gedaan. Er zit dan ook mooie diepte in deze foto.

Groetjes, Helma

Very nice composition. And yes, sometimes there is no time to contemplate composition, camera settings, etc., it's speed that counts!

This is amazing ... it really is an eye-capturing pattern, I can see why you were drawn to snap it. I really like it! Kath :-)
