    I took this photo on my way back after hiking to Bluebird Lake. It was the first time I have been to the Wild Basin area in Rocky Mountain National Park. The light at the cascades seems to be extremely difficult but I like this image a lot. Taken with Canon Digital Rebel (300D) & Tamron 24-135mm lens..

    Beautiful lighting and nicely framed.

    The rocks near the top of the image appear to be much more in focus than the bottom. Almost too sharp?

    How did you manage to take this one without a ND filter of at least +2, or even more?
    Exposure is brilliant, the flow of the water so softened, yet no overexposure anywhere ... a very beautiful photo!

    Absolutely gorgeous! How long of an exposure was that? I've always been a fan of waterfalls but, up until recently, I had no way of taking photos like this of them. :meh:

    Thank you. :)

    I am not sure why the top looks sharper than the bottom. I used smart sharpen on the whole image after I edited it.

    The settings were. ISO100, f/22, 4 seconds. I used a circular polarizer and either an ND4 or an ND8 filter.
