Living in Eastern Canada (Montreal) puts me in close proximity to Niagara Falls. Over the years I visited falls on few occasions but somehow I never stayed late enough to see them illuminated with the projectors at night.
On my last visit due to the time constraints I stayed at the falls for very short time, long enough to photograph sunset the day I arrived and sunrise the following day. After finishing with the sunset and being dead tired due to 7 hours drive from Montreal, I decided to wait for an hour anyway until illumination would go on.
But I was a bit disappointed with the lighting effect. It looked to me very fake and unnatural. If somebody just learned photoshop basics and started splashing most saturated colors in excitement.
I like the effect of long exposure in the water but I am not sure about overall effect of the illumination.
What do you think?
