Rivendale, Metlako Falls Oregon
#photographyworkflow, #howtophotograph , #landscapephotography

Metlako Falls always reminds me of the land of the Elves from Lord of the Rings...and why not? Oregon is beautiful!!. The falls are located on the Eagle Creek and the whole area is just breathtakingly beautiful. A must for every photographer who plans to visit Columbia River Gorge.

How was this photograph created?
I used rule of the thirds, a circular polarizer and the right light to create this photograph. The vibrant colors you see are result of circular polarizer combined with wet spring growth that leaves everything looking fress and green. The fact that sun was peaking slightly through the clouds created textures for this image.

We created a small on location video that +Varina Patel will share when we get a chance.

Enjoy and Share.

Just "Enjoy and Share"??? Goodness Gracious Me!!! Its immensely generous of you just to post this extraordinary photograph publicly. I'm at a loss for words (it happens rarely to me) to say something/anything about this work of art. And now I'll spend countless sleepless nights; so eagerly I'll await +Varina Patel's video. For the first time today I realize what a good thing I've done to include you +Jay Patel in my circle. I hope you wont mind if I take the liberty to include you in my Friends circle too. You have a superlative sense of aesthetics. Now I'll seriously await your posts the moment I enter g+.
So beautiful!!! That reminds me of Basin Bleu in Haiti :))))
sooooooooooooooooo nice
very nice toss a tone mapping algorithm into the mix for some interesting results it has all of the characteristics for a great hdr
Very nice . You captured the moment.
It is sometimes difficult to achieve the beauty of reality into an image however, +Jay Patel you have certainly knocked this out of the ball park! Great shot!

One of my favorite place to hike! Thanks for sharing this beautiful photo....
I like it! Most of the pictures you see from Eagle creek are of Punchbowl. I need to do that hike again...
nothing in word 4 this photograph
i wish it could me plce in my home or society........./
Perfect exposure blending, with all the detail in both the vegetation and the falls retained. This looks very Hudson School. Thanks for sharing!
it does look like riverdale kind of from Lord of the Rings......
reminds me of Hawaii when we went hiking!
Good grief! Thats an expensive plumbing problem.
Hello Jay, I worked as an assistant for Las Vegas Pix and went on to become an apprentice photographer. I do like your work and have been doing some marketing work for people like yourself. If you ever feel like breaking into the Vegas market let me know. The great thing about Las Vegas is we get so many visitor's from every part of the globe. I might be able to help you. The art scene is really starting to explode down here.
