This begs for an equally beautiful nude model.

I simply refuse to accept any bucolic harmony of this beautiful environment to the resulting (slow shutter) deformed condition of the water.

I sometimes wish I could like photographs of waterfalls; it would give me another ten million images to enjoy. But I just can't. I can see that this is a beautifully made photograph, technically sound and all that, but I can't find a way so distinguish it from all the others. My failing, of course, not yours.

A truly wonderful landscape image, and technical mastery is evident here.

Simply stunning, you sure know how to bring an image to life !.

My first reaction to this shot was "Wow! Technical perfection! But otherwise forgettable..." Then I took a closer look, and it dawned on me that those crepuscular rays are there, and that it's a rather extraordinary sight.

The processing of this image is just fantastic. The richness in the dark areas, the luminosity-with-detail in the bright areas is just spot-on. It looks like it might be a DocAchoo shot, as far as subject and well-preserved detail goes. Which would mean a 5D, full-frame image. If this was shot on an APS-C camera, then it's even more extraordinary technically. Whatever, just a very finely-made image with that extra "Aha!" grace note that takes it beyond the ordinary.

In the context of this challenge, it won't have my vote as a winner, because I'm looking in a different direction here. But my goodness, I do admire it as a landscape shot! I wish it were mine.

Beautiful water motion. I like the colors and the composition. Oh yeah... and the DOF. Good stuff.

Thank goodness! An esthetically pleasing image to feast our eyes on. This is soooo nice to look at... wish I was there right now! Simply beautiful! 10

The forms here are sensuous. This would have been a great candidate for manipulation into a more abstract image.

I don't like waterfall shots, but this is a very good waterfall shot.

This is a very beautiful landscape shot, but does not seem right for a posthumous challenge.
