Greetings from the Critique Club :)

I love waterfall shots and they are quite fun to do. You have done well with this one too. Your exposure here is right on the money. You did not over expose the water. There is still enough detail in it to see the water nicely. As I look at your camera settings for this shot, I can see that you are definitely in tune with what needs to be done on a shot like this. I generally use Aperture priority to get a longer shutter speed on shots like this rather than shutter priority.

I have a friend that does waterfall shots professionally.... You can see some of his stuff at //www.kevinadamsphoto.com if you are interested. He speaks at our camera club about once per year and he has two waterfall photo books out now.

The only 'risk' I see in this waterfall shot is the choice of black and white. Most viewers are going to beg for color on a shot like this.

Keep up the good work :)

Very nice capture of the water fall - good use of slow shutter speed for this. Nicely done.

Good contrast in motion. Very nice.

Nice range of tones, composition leads the eye across the image. NOT trying to freeze the water helps in the context of this challenge.

very, very nice... did it have to be black and white though?

Now thats how you do a waterfall. I am shocked to see so meny people that dont know how to shoot moving water. maybe this shot will drive that point home. vote +9

Nice. Love to see the colour version posted in Out-takes.

I love the effect of long exposures on water that is moving. I am curious as to why you went with B&W.

I love those. Good eye. Jacko.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... your clasic silk waterfall. Good choice of B&W and shutter speed. I'm a sucker for nice Zen pics. ;o) 8

the black and white (IR?) was a good choice. people are gonna lecture you about the rule of thirds, but the central composition really makes this piece. the idea of the waterfall was not very creative, but the execution is marvelously done. 9

Love this shot, love you did it in B&W...fine work.

Not sure if black & white enhances this or not... I probably would have preferred color... but still a very nice shot.
