    Beautiful image Scott...!

    BTW, you can easily add the image to your post by pasting that link into the "image" box in the
    posting menu. It's just 2 icons to the right of the "globe".

    Looking closer at your pic, have you tried increasing the saturation slightly to highlight the
    green and other colors? (I think I see a rainbow in there, too...)

    Boy, that's an attention-grabber.

    That, I think, is a very attractive image that is well constructed. I think the management and control of light is very good. I think it's a strong composition. I think the creative vision has been good in not 'just' presenting us with another waterfall, but shows that effort went in to creating that composition.

    Some people might not like it for the length of the shutter speed and the extent to which the water has been allowed to blur. And in many circumstances, I'd be one of those. But, in my opinion, it works here. That is because, I suggest, the water is but one element in the image. It is more wispy and not the overpowering, dominant/central feature that it can often be. I think the image is more than strong enough in overall terms to be able to carry that degree of 'fluffy' water.

    The lighting in that bottom left quadrant, with the water falling onto the wood and the rock, is superb.

    An excellent image. My compliments.

    Donald,

    Thanks so much for the criticism. I am experimenting to get the water blur correct. I agree with you; too much blur and it detracts.

    As far as working to set-up. It was a challenge, and I did not check the lens condition enough. I lost some good images because of moisture on the lens that I could not see through the view finder. Another lesson learned.

    Very nice Scott! has an eerie feel to it especially with all the dead branches. As has been said, its something different when it comes to waterfall images. Its not in Des Moines, is it? I just traveled through there!

    You are correct. It is not near Des Moines. The photo was taken near Glenwood Springs, CO, behind the falls that feeds Hanging Lake.
