Very nice. Number 4 is a great view. I live in California and if that's the highest waterfall in England, I never knew how flat England is.

Thanks.

It's not that flat, there are some high mountains in Scotland. Just no high waterfalls.

A lovely series with some very interesting and diverse perspectives. Hard to choose a favorite, but sure do enjoy that pink sky in #3...

Awesome! Would love to know how you processed the last one, I love the look. Was it HDR or did you get it another way?

Thanks for comments.

The pink sky is probably HiTech grad filter fault . It's supposed to be neutral but for some reason when exposure is a bit longer it gives some pinkish colour cast. I removed most of it but sun was setting and there was some pink in the sky so I lef it.

No HDR, I don't like the look of it at all. Just selective burning and dodging, vibrance and clarity in Lightroom. And real grad filter on the lens.

And just to clarify, that waterfall is 80 meters high. I've been there few years ago when water was lower and I could stand right in front of it where it lands and it is high.
