Snoqualmie Falls is only about 30 miles east of Seattle. On a beautiful day, like this one, it is well worth the 1/2 mile hike to the bottom of the falls.

This is very beautiful. I really like the way you caught the rainbow in the shot as well.
I do wonder though, where the sharpest focus is located? The waterfall itself is blurry, and the rocks around the water look blurry as well. This could be due to mist, but I'm not really sure. The tree to the left look close, but still not as crisp as I'd like to see it. I think that the lack of a sharp focus is the only thing I see that could be improved upon.
When I see this, I do not automatically think of someone's home, but if this is what you think of when you think of HOME, then who am I to say differently.
The angle and framing/cropping is nice with the tree to the left, and the rainbow near center, but not dead center. It has nice balance. The colors are great. I think that such a nice day helped with this greatly.
The lighting looks to have been perfect for you. What luck! Great capture, and a beautiful scene. Had the focus been slightly crisper, this would be perfect.
Great job.

Just doesn't make me think of home, although it is a good picture.

Some shots just make you say 'wow' when you see them. This is one of those. Great work - an unprecedented second 10 for me for the week. The best of luck to you - hope to see this place very high indeed.

lots of things to look at in your picture, and a great shot of the rainbow. It would be more effective if there was a clear focus - either the tree, the rainbow, or the waterfall - it would really make the picture 'pop'. Good shot still!

WOW! This is one incredible picture. You're so lucky to have such beautiful scenery. Congratulations on such an awesome photo. I do think it is a bit of a stretch for the challenge so I'm giving it a 9. I don't think it's completely off, it still counts, but it just doesn't make me think of Home Sweet Home. Congrats again. This is wall worthy.
