[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After shooting Brook of the Dancing Fairies, I head back to the falls and found my shooting companion intently studying his settings (or probably his shots). The waterfalls at his back is called Buruwisan Falls

Me: Having difficulty focusing on the waterfalls? Maybe its because the falls is at your back...

Him: (Glancing up from what he is doing) Not funny.

I thought it was pretty funny :D.

Seriously, you have to admire the stuff most nature/travel photographers have to endure just to get that photo. Rivers to cross, muddy trails to trek, sleeping in a crampy tent...

This one's dedicated to you all.

Thanks for viewing.

Nice! A great shot, well composed and well timed, and an enjoyable note too!
Thanks for sharing

that's funny allan and i thought that the image/s are cut & paste effects only. ;-)
coz of shooting the view at the back or there's more view opposite than the falls, tha't you! hehehe!

Hi Allan,
Sometime i feel that we miss the beauty..we always fighting with our cameras to grab the beautiful places.
anyway..its a nice shot.

Excellent compo and framing, very nice colours, excellent and funny photographer portrait.



Hah, hah. Turn around, man. Oh, what, another waterfall? Nah, I'm interested in the rocks. Nice work with the fill flash here. Composition, exposure, colors, moment, idea . . . really well done all around. Thanks for sharing. -Hugh

Hi Allan,
Wonderful candid, and what a scene, all is just prfectly framed! Excellent work.

Hello Allan !

Very original portrait , with an idyllic place as BG. I like the dark colors provided with the use of the flash to light up your friend !
A very nice souvenir of a good photohunt .
Well done!
