This is beautiful, and a great water flow. Whenever I've been there it's usually a thin stream. I like where you took this from also, and your lens choice. Your signature water motion blur is also present. Unfortunately, for me going to this place brings bad memories as the last time I was there a man committed suicide right after I packed up my tripod and headed back towards the parking lot. What a bummer.

Now, after the DQ, I'm somewhat regretting giving you that 8. : )

This is one of those times when a border really enhances an image.
Lovely work.

Should be top five, maybe even a ribbon.. beautiful work. If this is HDR then its the most subtle use of the technique and should be an image that people refer to when HDR is mentioned. If its not HDR, then boy was you lucky with the light. 9

A great composition enhanced by the flowing, but not too blurred, foreground water, good luck
