The quote above was taken from a post where I was showing the difference a 10 stop ND filter can make when photographing the surface of a lake. Finally found a workable spot (on a creek in the mountains) to try his suggestion. There might have been better places where the water play around the rocks was more interesting but this creek is not very accessible. You kinda get the picture though. (no pun)

G'day mate

Agreed - you've captured the beautiful watery effects
cc if I may... the oof rock in the lower centre - pity it wasn't equally sharp as the others

Indeed. I applied some sharpening to it but that only does so much. I also cropped some off the bottom as well. Now that I know what's possible I'll have to find a creek that's a little more accessible and take a bunch of them with different settings and distances.

Thanks for the comment.

This will give you some idea of the terrain around there. This shot was taken from a kind of cave or huge erosion of the basalt behind the falls. The shot above was taken quite a ways below the pool.

Here's another one approaching the falls from the left. In the winter there is a lot more water going over the cliff.

Stassel falls is passed on on the same hike. It's actually about a 55-60 foot drop but it's hard to get down to the bottom and capture it from the front. People do it but it wasn't on the agenda this past weekend.

Beautiful shots Chipersei..!!!

Love the creamy effect on the 1st capture and the second is outstanding. That waterfall remind me a similar place I found at Zion National Park last year.

I'm glad that I helped to create beauty with your camera.
