Very nice :thumbsup:

At the top of the image, there is some water falling down but we can't see where it's falling from. That's the only thing about it that distracts me a little, it makes me want to see the rest of the falls above. That's not really a criticism -- some would like it better that way! If it was my image, I might edit out the falling water at the top, but it's just personal taste.

Great shot. The water movement is silky smooth. The branch above was moving too as there seems to be a double image of it. I'm not sure what you could do about it in post. I like it though... :judge: :thumbsup:

You could "cheat", as I have done in the past...by cloning in part of another waterfall photo to replace certain areas ;)

I hope you don't mind - I took the liberty of creating an example to show what I'm talking about. This isn't a very good job of it, just a quick 1-minute clone edit. But done correctly it could work pretty well.

Nicely done B&W - good contrast I think. Image looks sharp, I do notice the branch that looks like a double image. That's the only thing I might try to correct. I like the compsition w/the rocks and branches that give it some framing.

I like the shot, the branch does look a bit weird. I personally may have looked at doing the photo in the upright to show where the water was coming from...only my opinion. Nice pic :thumbsup:

Great silky smooth water, good mono conversion, nice contrast. The only thing I'd look at is the framing. The shot looks tops heavy with little to draw us into the foreground, the action or interest is in silky water, so I'd try and fill the frame with that

I like the original better than the cloned image (altho you said it was just a quick edit). The streams of water above the falls remind me of rays of sunlight coming out of the clouds. I like the branches framing the shot too. Maybe we just all have different styles/preferences - which is why we could probably all go photograph the same thing and come back w/a variety of different images.

While I don't mind the water coming from the top of nowhere, what I may have done to add some more is to do some additional shots catching the higher elevation and then doing a photostitched image, like what I did with the WTC Tribute in Light from this year (Had that hought from the moment I was taking the pictures). That would fill in what is missing at the top...

Either way... it is a great image... love the flowing silky smooth water running over the rocks. :judge: :judge:

It's a lovely waterfall, and a good choice of shutter speed for the water given the fine definition in the water. This composition immediately jumped out at me:



It's a shame about the branch though. Sometimes if it is possible to move closer, one can get a little more underneath obstructions like that and shoot around them. Of course, it's impossible for me to know what your options were at the time. If it's a location you can get back to easily, I'd recommend working the scene again.

Best,

Justin
