Water falls are beautiful to see but are very difficult to capture in full glory.But here you have done it very excellently.
The slow shutter speed have done wonders.
Very well composed image.

Wonderful photo. I like everything in your picture, especially falling water that is so "soft" (thanks to the long shutter speed). I also like colours and atmosphere of the picture.
Thanks for sharing

I know exactly what you mean. That's exactly the way i met Paul when i was in the UK and it was way better than i hoped it would be! :)
I can only hope that one day i'll be able to meet you and Evelynn, too.
This is a very nice close-up and dedication from you.
The water running down the texture of the rock looks nice and the filtered light makes the colors pop-out so wonderfully. I do feel curious of the larger views of the Silver Falls State Park, i must admit, bit i can always admire these close-ups on various elements that make nature more tangible for us, in a way.
Very good composition, technical-wise, with that lonely rock in the lower left corner setting the picture apart.
Lovely work as always, my friend!
Bravo and TFS
Oh Niek! ...this was worth the wait. Thank you for such a lovely image... pour Moi !!! I remember you taking this shot and your dad perched against a rock taking a video of the same falls. The light is beautiful. It is just lovely. I've taken very few shots there in the summer. It is a frustrating place to photograph... but you did well! In addition to this composition I can also see a couple of others hidden in the frame. If you have enough resolution you could crop out another real winner or two. Great work. I hope you appreciate how far you have come with your photography.
We are going to the coast tomorrow and I'll take that new filter along. There is supposed to be a minus tide. I doubt I'll take any prize winners but "nothing ventured... nothing gained" I suppose.

I also found meeting fellow TN members to be a great experience, as Hora mentioned. I also hope to meet you and Evelynn one day too!
The light you have caught here is wonderful and the mood as a whole is superb - very fairyland like! I just can't make up my mind whther the rovck in the FG is small enough to be a bit distracting...:o)
(i just don't understand the lack of critiques here either. This is a top quality shot.)

This one grows on you (me, anyway). The darkness of the setting is kind of off-putting and interesti g at the same time, like missing the top of the falls (the precipice). I find myself lookoing deeply into the details. I think I agree with Paul about the leaf on the bottom left, I don't think it's big enough to provide informal balance, and I think the shot would be stronger with it cropped out. But I strongly agree that this is a very strong shot, easily calendar material.
P.S. I'm glad you got to meet Evelynn. I hope we'll get to meet someday, too.

You may have struggled with the sunlight and brightness but I think you handled it just fine on this picture.
I like the greens and the upright nature of the shot - but also struggle with the rock in the foreground - I guess it is the left hand side of it that just catches a touch too much light and pulls away from the rest of the picture - I guess if it alone was toned downa touch....
otherwise I really like it and you have caught it well. again I am also suprised by the lack of interest in the shot.
