Wow, where to start. The colors in this photo are so vibrant they actually POP. The detail is amazing, all the more when I see that the photo was taken with a C size camera. The waterfall being dead center in this photo actually works. So fortunate to have nearly still water in the foreground allows me to see the rocky bottom of the creek. The waterfall grabs your eye but can not hold it because of all the other elements in the picture. As i stop to look at this photo in the midst of this critique I am still darting about trying to take in everything in this photo. Well done indeed. I gotta know what lens you took this with because it works great.

Vision: This is an amazing photograph that reflect's mother nature's incredible talent.It feels as if the small waterfall is penetrating the huge mass of green around it.

Originality: This photograph shot is unique.A waterfall would need the other foliage to decorate it to be well presented.

Technique: I think some photoshop tools were used to blur/smudge some of the parts which hinder the image, the distance of the shot is well-thought for this capture.

Impact: The colors of the photograph calms your mind and soothes your soul, it leaves you fresh and mesmerized, that a place like this truly exists.

I was just there a few months ago, It didn't look nearly as green or "full"  This is a great capture

Thanks!  It was overcast and I was using a 9-stop ND and a CP filters.  Really made the colors pop.

Thanks!  I have been wanting to go there for a long time to focus on photography instead of just hiking.  It is an amazing area.

Very impressive Josh!  curious about the 400 iso , did you use a ND filter? 
Bravo! :clap:

:iconjxsnyder:
jxsnyder Featured By Owner May 26, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
Thanks!  I was using a circular polarizer and a 9-stop ND filter.  I had to bump up the iso to lessen the shutter speed due to the large amount of people wanting to take a "selphie" in front of me.  I also didn't want to lessen the depth of field by opening the lens up any more.

OMG.....lol. You gave in to the selfie takers??? :rofl: 
i would have told them to back off! Not really... ;) 
i always use both the polarizer and nd filter together, I love the results. 
Very well done. I selected your photo as one of the weekly deviations for we really love photos!

But they outnumbered me!  Fortunately some of them were curteous and noticed that someone was taking a real photo and gave me a few minutes with the falls all to myself.

Thank you!
