Nice shivering cold, shot. Seems you didn't have to use an ND filter to freeze the falls.

Ha, the squirrels YOU cross over will not take over the word. Unknown to you, beneath that icy chasm lies the hidden, lost city of Atlantis; where they preform their own genetic mutations of squirrels. These squirrels look and act like our Earth squirrels, but they in fact have a goal take over and inherit the earth. Now lets talk about what the Bermuda Triangle is brewing...by the way, fantastic picture. =) I would NOT want to fall down there.

Amazing- What an awesome scene. I didn't get to vote on the complete challenge because of personal obligations but I wish I would had been able to. This would of received another 10. Very impressed with the B&W process, so much detail and range. This has to go into my fav's.
Very nice work. IMO probably one of the best B&W photos I have viewed to date.
Congrats

great challenge photo,
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2008 08:15:39 PM
Oh wow. That's really awesome. But I think there maybe so much going on here that come color may help differentiate between all of the elements in the frame.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2008 06:11:05 PM
WOW, really nice. Is it HDR in B/W? If it is I have to admit I have not seen many HDR in B/W. I really like this one, my pick for ribbon. Good luck.
