    Very nice; the only concern I have is the time of day at which these were taken. There's some very dark shadow as well as bright highlights. Is there a time when the overall area would be more evenly illuminated? If not, perhaps an early morning exposure when it's all shadow? That would allow for a more even overall exposure.

    I agree, the only other thing I think I'd want is some better foreground. The muddy stuff doesn't do it for me. I liked the water kinda going over that lip on the last image. Maybe more of that in the frame? Just my opinion though.

    Nice work dude. Hopefully, in two weeks I will get my first attempt at some falls photos. I doubt that I will get to shoot one as nice as Hunua though. What filters did you use on these; stacked polarizer and the ND8? What time of day were these taken? I just purchased an ND4 and ND8 that should be coming in the mail soon, along with a CPOL. Can't wait to use them. Oh BTW, is that your real name; Michael Hunt? That name reminds me of this very popular 80's American movie called Porky's, hehe.

    HAHA! yes i am the cliche known as Mike Hunt!. Anyway thanks for your thoughts guys and yes i know the time of day sucked it was like 3pm i plan on going back perhaps early morning or late evening later this week. I used a ND8 and no polarizer the one i have leaves marks on my photos :thumbdown:
    and unfortunately there isn't too much around to make much of an interesting composition either that or i cant see photographically yet! something i wish to develop

    Cheers,

    Mike Hunt - yes yes real name hahah hahah haha :hail:
