Very moody image. Love the bright light with the curtain of water falling down and the steam lifting up. Reminds me a little of the explorers sailing our seas a long time ago not knowing what they would expect, maybe a curtain and nothing behind it.
This is a unique take on Niagara Falls. I guess the low light and clouds made for the perfect B&W conversion. I did make this as a Favorite because of the uniqueness of the image. Makes think "film noire."
As a master of B&W you were able to present this unique photo of Niagara Falls. The title is most fitting. I like the dramatic mood, great contrasts and the boat in front of all that foam.
