I do not know why this did not get a ribbon, pure bad luck!
There should be a second-poll for the first 5! Like the French poll ;-)

congrats on the score and placement. A terrific rendition of silky-smooth. Wonderful tiered compositional gives a good feeling of depth in the photo. Has a nice painterly feel to it.

Wow, Skewsme, I don't know how I missed noticing that your shot is on the front page. Wonderful!! Actually, the saturation (especially the blue) is a bit too much for my taste, but we know what the voters like. The composition is lovely. Congratulations.

Wow, top 10 - congrats! Love the rich colors and how you framed it, with some bonus falls peeking in from the left corner.

Well kick some ass. Great shot fellow 9th place. What are the chances of that. This shot is absolutely stunning. I think this is better than all of the shots above you. Unfortunately, most people don't seem to care what I think. Excellent job.

I feel like a nekked Adam and Eve should jump out any minute, or perhaps a Hobbit. Either way this is a great capture of nature's natural beauty. What an eye. Nice job. 9

Fantastic sharp colors! this is my favorite waterfall picture of the set so far

Extremely nice shot! I have always enjoyed the smoothness of using a long exposure with rapidly falling water... and this is a perfect example of it. The whole shot shows thought, clarity, DOF and balance. Truly a wonderful shot! (8)

Nice job on slowing the flow of the water without blowing the highlights. Very silky.

I'm not usually a big fan of waterfall shots, but you framed this one nicely and chose an angle with some very interesting details. I'll give it an 8.

pretty view, nice composition, but oversaturated

Very well processed image. We had the same idea and similar problems. Like me, you had problems with wind that moved some branches during the exposure and you added a blue color cast, possibly while adjusting for deep greens. You went for maximum depth of field with nice sharp foreground interest items just like I did. I was unsatisfied with my processing after a second re-processing so did not submit.
