Looks like you had some tricky lighting there.

I like the first one a lot: the colour in the water is just great. Composition looks a little chopped off at the top maybe, but I'm guessing you were trying to avoid a blown out sky ?

Regards, John.

Thank you for the comment.

It was a bit tricky day as far as the lighting goes. But for the first picture, I was actually trying to concentrate to the lower end of the falls. I've went to this place numerous times and I wanted to focus to something different this time.

I have another picture that didn't get cropped on the top. I'll show you later.

I agree with John on these 2 pictures. Maybe a nd filter or even a graduated nd would help.........thekman.

I agree with you thekman. I've been wanting to buy a ND graduated filters for a loong time. Just been too lazy to go! That filter is definitely on my 'shopping' list. Thank you.

The last one you have just posted is definately your strongest pic.

I really struggled with waterfall photos until I bought a polarizing filter. If you didn't use one here, I suggest getting one. It will also allow slightly slower shutter speeds, but not as much as an ND filter.
