This is a photograph I took of a falls in a small town called Ithaca NY. Please let me know where I can improve.

Spent a lot of time in Ithaca-just like the bumper sticker says "Ithaca is Gorges"

You might try Buttermilk Falls-a little smaller that Ithaca Falls. IMHO Taughannock Falls is the most dramatic in the area. I use a Pentax DS with a 4x ND filter to use slow shutter speeds. (various lenses)

The Buttermilk Falls is a very nice falls to photograph as you have stated. I have taken pics the Taughannock Falls, and yes it is a very nice falls to photograph at the bottom with a wide angle lens.

This is a nice waterfall pic, well exposed and sharp. It would be interesting to see it in colour to compare. I would probably try and zoom out a bit more if possible - maybe stitch a couple of photos together if you cant get the wide angle in one shot.

Cheers, Ollie

First of all congrats on yourchoice of B&W! Compositionwise, including the leaves on the righthandside adds an appealing dimension. You may still sharpen them to accentuating their role, IMO.Such a wonderful view which made mewish to see more to the right,also... Anyway, a slight cropping off from the top reducing the size of the escaping point or opening at thetop left corner of the image, would be fine I think.

Well done!

Regandon2 I like the the way it is. If you take and crop the top, I think you will lose perspective on how huge this shot is. Great job all around.JMO. We all have our own insight on what we see. I would also like to see a color image.
