The purpose of the photo is to capture the smoothness of the falling water. By using morning lighting and a longer exposure I tried not to overexpose the water.

Wow great job and congratulations on reaching one of your own personal goal by scoring higher then a 6.5.

This is a fantastic photo. The flow of water defiantly fits the challenge and grabs the viewers eye. The contrast between the water and natural green color really enhances the composition of the photo.

I really wish I had some suggestions but I think you have created a wonderful image. Congratulations on your 5th place that is awesome!

Thanks for all the great comments. It is unfortunate for the original first place photo in this challenge, but I won't complain for being in the top 5. =-)

Hopefully this falls and the other dozen in the park will get a little more DPC attention from the Oregonians and Washingtonians...hint hint Dr Achoo.

beautifully shot. The rectangular shape of the falls seems a bit too centered in the frame for me, but still nice. 8

I like this. I wish I could capture a waterfall like this. The only thing I don't like is that branch that is over the waterfall.

Great composition. I love the movement of the water...and the rich green color of the trees.

Likely a top 10 image with top 5 potential and an outside chance for a ribbon because of its strong connection to the challenge theme. :)
