This picture was taken in Clifty Falls State Park in Indiana. Let me know what you think. This waterfall would be hard to photograph with high flow as the creek bed itself serves for the trail to get to this location for at least 1 mile. One day, I may try to photograph this at high flow if I get a good pair of wading boots.

Hi nelmr, really nice shot, but could do with a little more saturation.

Thanks for the comments. Also what is interesting is those big whitish colored rocks in the bottom middle recently fell from the cliffside 60-80 feet above. The biggest rocks are as big as a bus (and maybe was part of a larger peice before it hit). I wouldn't want to be there when it feel. Where I took the picture is now the closest anyone is allowed to the falls in this area due to falling rocks. I would love to go when waterflow is high. I don't know when/if I will do that.

Two more edits of this image. The first one here has some improved local contrast as well as some selective dodging and burning to balance the image. I will not increase saturation as it is at it's peak in terms of color and detail. Any more saturation reduces details on a large print.

The second image is a black and white conversion (65% blue, 20% green, and 15% red). This made the rocks in the pool almost disappear but most notably the waterfall stands out more and the image has an edgy feel to it. At least to me. Is the B&W conversion too dark? should I have used more green? Using more red would have reduced the contrast as the more than half of the image is red. I welcome thoughts.
