Detail of the waterfall at Chimney Rock, NC. This is a color photo, btw. :)

Overcast day. I would have 'softened' the water, but I don't yet have any neutral density filters, so the water would have been REALLY blown out. I kind of like the 'stopped action' here though. So it works for me.

I have to say that it's LOVELY to see a waterfall where the water doesn't look like cotton candy/spun sugar/angel hair/fluff in general...the water pictured here has such a pleasing texture and sense of movement, a truer sense of what the water does as it cascades down the rock...and the overall tones of the image are very nice...very well done.

beautiful falls...going with the quick shutter over a more flowing look was a good decision here

Nice action waterfall shot, everything is sharp and in focus. and I like that I can see individual drops of the water. Interesting shot.

I like the level of sharpness and detail in the water here, I wonder what it would have been like at different speeds.
