Niagara Falls, illuminated by a bank of spotlights. The plants nearby look like some kind of odd alien coral. Cold out that night, -2 degrees or so.

I think its been 24 years ago, I was only 5 years old, I remember standing there in that area thinking wow long ways down! WOW Great picture! I also remember watchin the big boat how close it get to the edge before fighting the current and going back! My parents were to afraid to ride it so we only watched!

Very good. Too much sky though.

A nice long exposure but I think the top needs just a little bit of cropping.

Nice capture, but would prefer to see more of far detail and less of near.

I really like the fluffy effect of the long exposrue on the water. The lighting is very dramatic.

Nice long exposure on the water here, the colours on the plant? at the front are a bit boring to look at though. Well, suppose it all is the same colour so there isn't much you could do about it. 8

WHOA!!!!!! I wish there was a little less up top and the horizon wasn't quite so centered, but wow. WOW. 10

great shot, I have been there in the summer, but never the winter. I would love to see some of you other shots once the challenge is over

Niagra Falls with hoarfrost! Lovely! Nice point of view, though I do wish I could see either more of the falls or less of the negative space behind, which I don't feel is accomplishing a lot. Perhaps just a simple closer crop would help. I love the misty feel of the falls, and the foreground provides a wonderful lead-in to the rest of the scene.

Been there many, many times -- it's a great place to get night shots, as you have shown! I might have panned down just a bit to provide a little more foreground and a little less sky, but this is still one of my favorites of the challenge.

The water is very smooth looking. Somehow I'm not "drawn in" to the image - there's too much to look at.

Could probably have been improved by including more of the waterfall and less of the sky. But otherwise, great shot. Good to include the structure in the foreground to add depth.

Nice, but the shadow in the lower right detracts a bit.

Nice shot. Good capture on the flowing water and frost covered plants. The horizon is a bit slanted and I might have cropped a little more of the sky out.

Spectacular shot. Would of like more of the falls and less of the right side. Still this is so nice. Congrats. 8 from me.
