Shot with my crappy 18-55mm lens @ 18mm.

Quite a bit of work on this one including cloning out dead branches, cloning in vegetation at the top of the falls to hide blown out patches of sky. A bit of dodging and burning, played with curves and used gaussian blur to give a soft touch.

My first real attempt at obtaining a silky feel for moving water. Quickly realizing that I need ND filters if I want to attempt this again in the future.

Nice waterfall shot, good use of bring the colors present forward. I like the way the white changes direction.

Very nice. Waterfalls are great for this time of year. The foreground needed something; maybe a red/orange leaf on the brown rock at front left?

The silky waterfall and cascades are beautiful. Your positioning of the lower cascade draws the eyes to the falls in the background. Well done.
