Thought I would give this a try even though we are not in fall (autumn) here so I don't know how well it will be received but I like it anyway.

The original image has more area above the falls which I prefer but the crop strengthened the subject matter.

Live view is amazingly helpful for those tricky shots where looking through the viewfinder is difficult.

I really love the way those gnarled roots clutch the rocks and the ground like sinewy talons seeking to maintain a desperate hold. Lovely backdrop and the autumn colored leaves in the foreground complete and compliment this beautifully composed image very nicely.

It's spring there! That doesn't count. Pretty Pic though.

The thin waterfall in the distance seems to be echoed by the roots of the foreground subject tree. That is the only source of any real colour - te rest of the tones are light & dark, shadows & greys. Very harmonious & yet the diverse & myriad shapes provide difference & tension.
