    I vote for the first one, gives a real sense of the water rushing towards you.

    i cant decide....#1 is so artistic,really beautiful,but #2 is more real to life,as how you would remember the shot.....but if i were to hang it on my wall, it would have to be #1

    i vote #1 just b/c of the water...i personally don't care for the rest of the photo, but nice water. just my opinion, however. maybe if the colors were more vibrant, a touch brighter may persuade me differently.

    The style in number 1 has become a cliché and those that are into this type of shot have changed their approach accordingly. A polarizer is used along with a shutterspeed that is in between #1 and #2, as in not as fast as number 2, but not as slow as number 1. The emphasis is on showing a hint of texture and water surface at the bottom.

    Definitely number one. Shows the movement of the water really well, and I like how you can see the rock through it. The colors are a bit flat, however.

    I'm sorry for asking, but how do you do that? I've tried to figure that out at a waterfall myself, but was not successful.

    I would say #1, if possible to reshoot, with a little shorter of a shutter speed? I find the brightness of the water towards the bottom very distracting.
