    Love number two - the others lack a focus point. There's nothing to look at, just kinda the whole scene.

    (Chairman goes back and looks again) Yeah, number two is very nice.

    Maybe you should try to experiment with a bit longer exposures like 1 sec and around that area. This way it will show the flow of the waterfall and with the shots you took it just freezes the waterfall and doesn't have any nice effect to it.

    #2 is the best, but underexposed. Try boosting that a little bit.

    Nice! As said, maybe a bit underexposed.

    As for #3, I think it might have been better if you used a narrower DOF so the outcrop of rock was in focus and the background more out of focus. That way it's a lot easier to see what is going on there. Right now the outcrop kind of blends in.

    pretty much what everyone else has been saying. #2 is my fav. possibly a touch underexposed. outa curiosity did you use a CP here?

    IMO 1 might have some good potential

    Or you could always use a beanbag for now. Or a sweatshirt. Or a few t-shirts. Go MacGyver-style! :mrgreen:
