One of the 21 waterfalls at Ricketts Glen in PA.

Had to play around with saturation - on one monitor it looks great. On the other, over saturated with yellow. So I desated the yellows a bit to try to find a happy medium. It always comes down to monitors though...

Other than that, curves, sharpen, save for web.
Pleasantly surprised this morning. Thanks everyone, for the votes and the comments.
I made the reservations for Ricketts Glen campground in August hoping I would be there at the right time for the leaf change. I got lucky not only that way, but in the fact that it rained all friday night and saturday morning. not lucky for camping, but lucky for the volume of water in the falls and the light.
Definitely a 'must-do' if you live in MD, DC, PA, NY, or NJ.
Neil - we should coordinate some time! I camp just about every weekend...

Beautiful shot. This exemplifies the Beauty of North east-in the woods fall hiking and camping. A whole bunch of these waterfall shots don't have the feel that yours has, and that is a testament to you knowing the place, camping there, etc.

I gave it a 9, Courtenay, and everyone who gave it less is a troll. ;-)
Congrats on 5th!

Nice job, congrats on 5th. We were there the same day in the morning! It would have been funny if we bumped into each other. We were there the day before too, so we left on Saturday before noon.
