Aira Force Waterfall
Recently when we were up at the Lakes we went to Aira Force Waterfall, which is probably the most famous of the Lake District Waterfalls. The waterfall drops an impressive 65 feet and is surrounded by pretty woodland. It is located in the North East corner of the Lake District National Park around Ullswater and 7 miles South of Penrith.

Yes I know what you mean Helen, not much space and the conditions pretty damp
Considering this is hand held it's not too bad, a little soft but acceptable.The people on the bridge helps with the scale and the sunlight highlighting the ferns give it depth.
Nice one.
The IS on the lens has helped but next time think about upping the ISO, 100 is a tad low. I always leave my 5DII on 200 and up it when necessary.

Thank you George for your comment, I think at the time I was too busy just trying to get a shot without getting too wet & people walking in front of me than to think about anything else. I shall try and remember the next time to up the ISO .

Considering the conditions you have done very well, very nice scene and well composed, I agree with Georges comments, the only thing I could add is to adjust levels to give a bit more detail in the shadows at the bottom of the waterfall, nice shot well taken and seen.
