I made up the title so this would sound cooler. It's really the Potomac River, on the Virginia side. Great Falls National Park.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

It needs to be a little brighter and a lot sharper, but this is a great photo. I wouldn't have guessed this was an IR photo, but it darkens the water and lightens the foliage; the effect is subtle and works very well here. The bottom of the photo seems cut off, but otherwise the composition is good. The landscape format contributes to the dreamy feeling evoked by the blurred waterfalls. The many diagonal lines lend excitement and make me want to visually explore the nooks and crannies, which unfortunately lack definition here. The focus point for IR light is slightly closer than for visible light which autofocus systems are tuned for; that may be part of the problem here. (It's one of the challenges of IR photography!)

Image is very soft. Needs to be sharpened substantially.

This is an interestingly composed image, but I'd like to see it somewhat sharper.

great landscape, whites should be a bit more bright, and somehow feels a bit out of focus?

A lovely scene but too dark and not sharp enough. A real pity too because with just a little more work this would be a winner. 5

This is a good composition. I like the contrast of the smooth flow of the water over the jagged rocks. Very nice!

Strange looking and original. Oldish looking.

nice. I like the waterfall. More contrast would have helped ont he left, to draw your eye to the water.

The depth of field seems limited. I'm trying to follow the river, but the lack of detail in the background makes it difficult. Great composition though.
