Well the suspense is over. Amazing what businessmen will do to promote business. The helicopter is well positioned in the frame, I see no oe, the mist from the petite falls provide an engaging element. A fine work. Have a good w/e Werner.
Hmmm, I can still see the clone-work! Thats a pitty! You've already said it in your note. But you can also see the pole and some other cloningwork on the rocks...
The composition and the colours are good. But not the pp-work and the cloning.

hi Werner excelltley timed shot good details and grt subject tfs
It took some time, and some reading, but it did have me fooled for a couple of seconds. It seems however Luckybry thinks it's real.
I was going to suggest a slower shutter speed to give the rotors a sense of movement, but once i came to my senses, realising it was trick photography, i may have embaressed myself by making such a comment!
For sheer hard work on trickery, cloning/PP work, i'm gonna give you smileys.

Excellent POV and composition like a movie scene ,lovely colours and sharpness.
Have a nice weekend
This looks like such an intriguing place, I would go crazy with photos here! Lol. Another very good capture, you've done a great job to freeze the gushing water and catch the steam at the same time. The clarity and choice of crop are nice too. A shame about the visible cloning marks, but nothing serious.

Hi Werner..very unusual composition for this helicopter..interesting and well done.
The pp work is okay for a beginner, so kudoes for trying. To get rid of the areas closer to the horizon, or some other part of the image that you don't want blurred, try a zero feather & pixelation, with a low rate: eg 5p to 10 p. Then change the color & tone to match the surrounds. I will try to find a lamp post I cloned out in Hawaii to demonstrate. Have a nice weekend!

Très originale cette image, l'hélico posé devant la chutte d'eau, sueprbe compo, avec ce beau rocher, il tien sur un patin, grandiose.
bravoe t maitié
I like the pov and composition. As regards the pp work wasit your intention to do partial pp work and leave a clue as to the helicopters fixed position? If so you should really say so. I feel jan was harsh to give no points but the pp work does detract so a 1 is fair I think
