Multnomah Falls from my Oregon visit during June 2008. The great fall to shoot and I didn't have tripod, wide angle or ND filter. I need to visit it again with all three things. I rest my camera on floor the other side of railings. To tilt it upwards, I used my wallet under the camera for support.

"Plummeting 620 feet from its origins on Larch Mountain, Multnomah Falls is the second highest year-round waterfall in the United States, first being Yosemite Falls. Nearly two million visitors a year come to see this ancient waterfall making it Oregonís number one public destination. "

Beautiful picture. I saw this falls in August, but didn't take nearly as beautiful a picture as this. Usually the bridge was full of people. Well done on the tone mapping. I don't know that wide angle, tripod or ND filter would have made it much better.

Very classic, oft photographed, waterfall (even I have done it). I like your exposure, and you did well keeping the detail in the rocks and plant life. I like that you added foreground interest but it still somehow feels devoid of life. Excellent technically, not so much emotionally. 6

i can almost hear the rushing water of the falls - deep and rich tones, lovely composition

not overprocessed in any way - good stuff!
