A beautiful rainbow over the waterfall Skógafoss. The weather was nicely sunny to capture a rainbow at the top of the falls. As a little play with the image, I applied partial desaturation at the top and bottom to highlight the colours of rainbow. I hope you will like it! :)

very nice rainbow, it is dificult to take so clear colors of the rainbow

A rainbow, a waterfall, a crisp foreground, and a soaring textured mountain are some of the elements that make this truly wholesome. Well captured Kristof, it's a beauty. Regards...Danilo

Hi Kristof

Good catch of the rainbow thrown up by the spray from the adjacent waterfall. Excellent use of partial desaturation, good sharpness, & a superb downward pov. Tfs!

Hi Kristof, this does look like the most interesting country - really interesting terrain. Nice capture of the rainbow here. I'm not too sure about the parital desat. though - I think I would have prefered to see it all in color .. just my opinion of course, still a great shot.

Hi Kristof
Happy to receive the first comment by you!
wonderful rainbow captured
great effect and wonderful landscape
have good day and week

Hi Kristof,

another wonderful shot with good composition and excellent vivid colours. I like the atmosphere and the partial desaturation.

Good work.

Have a nice afternoon and evening,


Pretty good shot, a little off on the color though. It's too purplish. So I did a WS on color balance, making the colors a little warmer. Now it could be that our monitors are different and this may look TOO much,... so let me know!

Hi dear Kristof

Superb capture. Great POV and colours.Perfect composition and great sharpness.Desaturation works very well here.

Have a nice week!

Very difficult thing to capture - you did great Kris:)
Very nice post - thanks, Tom:)

Hello Kristof,
This is very good capture and excellent composition. Colours are wonderful.
Best regards Siegfried


Your rainbow is spectacular as well! I like how it disappears into the sky. Did you venture down the hill to see if there was a pot of gold? :o)

I would post a workshop without the bottom and top desaturated. I'd love to see that.


Hi Kristof,
Iceland - the region of waterfalls. Beautiful rainbow and penetrate green with rainbow colours.
