Taken at Kaaterskill falls.

First attempt at using Buzz--trial version--on a photo to reduce detail and give it a clean, painterly feel. Other than that, pretty standard processsing--not much done to it, other than desaturating a leaf on the rock that was standing out and a bit of selective sharpening on the water using focus magic at setting 1 on a layer and then masking it so I had a mix of natural softness and sharpness just where I wanted.

It's good when the picture comes up and I give a totally reflexive "wow". The exposure is a thing of beauty in a very difficult technical picture. Likely post-processing helped, but that is no knock. 10

Great composition and I like that the shutter speed is not too slow as I like the resulting detail in the water. Very fine.

This is as beautiful and classic as landscape photography comes. A beautiful professional quality shot that could sell in any giftshop or be displayed on any nature calendar. I'm thinking November. :) 10

Beautiful colors and the contrast carries you from the foreground leading all the way up to the top waterfall, like this a lot..
