Really solid work Rich. The composition is very solid and the textures and colors of the rocks are magical. I just wish you could have toned down the whites of the white water a bit...

Great classic shot! Having been there myself, I know that it's not as easy as it looks to take this shot and have it come out this well. Beautiful.

This is a really nice capture of that waterfall! I like that you were able to get so much of the length of it...makes me feel as though I'm travelling alongside.

Wonderful and well composed photo of a great landscape.

The composition is superb here, but I'd like to see the background having a little more contrast, it feels a little washed out.

I love the bottom half of the frame but the top half looks kinda cloudy. I'm torn, one one hand I think it adds someting. on the other I'm not 100% fond of it. but great colors and composition.

I didn't even look at the Rule of Thirds challenge. Wow, I missed out. This is a lovely image. Looks like a painting. I hope you print it large and hang it on the wall, it's simply beautiful.

Looks like a Bierstadt Painting. So beautiful. One of my favorite spots to shoot and commune with the nature. You did well. Van

Very powerful image here.....
The background seems a little soft in color, compared to the rest of the image.
I also love the painted effect, as I do this with most of my images.....

Oh, I missed this in voting.
It has a very painterly effect, which I guess is appropriate for where it was taken. ;>þ

great shot, like the composition, it almost look slike a canvas ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

first of all... it's a lovely shot..
I would have loved a little more sky in the composition..
but as it is.. it's lovely..

The post processing for the photo could give it a vast improvement.. try tweaking it a little to get a little more richness and vibrancy for the colours.. :)

Finally.. the overall feel is quite nice.. with a little "dreamy" feel to it.. Keep it up..

i like how the river curves and leads the eye to the falls

It appears to me there was a lot of processing to get this image to this point. It fit the challenge well IMO but seems over processed.

Great point of view and subject matter, but the lighting seems kinda harsh (lots of blown out water) and I'm not seeing how the rule of thirds helps you here.

seems a bit out of focus and the whites in the water are blown out. i like the compostion though!
