interesting shot. i think i'd be tempted to slow the shutter down a bit to soften the water... it'd probably look real nice given the soft, desaturated look of the rest of the image...

I said to myself i would never comment on your photos Dwayne because you are unable to accept criticism. But I have to disagree with squirl's remarks regarding the water. I think something would be lost if it were softened up. As it is now, I think its ideal. There isnt the frozen ice look, but rather a natural look. There is a nice texture balance between the lines of the water and the softness of the surrounding rocks and vegetation as well as the white water against the darker background. The water is the only element that is not static and so should stick out more as it does. Well done.

Thank you very much for your honest comments and tips on this one !
I really appreciate it ! I am going for a more textured look to my water
fall shots in the future, for something a little different.

Take care,
Dwayne Oakes

Though I think both types of images would look good either way, I'm going to side with Rocky and go for the flowing water look. I say that just because if I was standing there and setting up the shot, I'd be looking for the flowing water look.

Your images are always a pleasure to look and ponder at.
