    And you captured it well!
    I think the exposure captures the flow of the water just PERFECTLY! I can almost HEAR it and FEEL splashes on my face. :D

    Thanks, wasn't sure initially if the waterfall was a bit too dominant although must admit that I do very much like the composition now

    I like the shot quite a bit. On my insanely slow dial-up connection when the photo first started coming up, I thought, "ih." But was impressed with the way the water kept coming forward at me. Overall, really nice.

    It definitely would improve the shot further, this was taken around 2.00pm on a not so nice day - one around 4.00pm with sunshine would work even better, now if only we had some decent weather !!

    I would love to go back to Wales and climb Mount Snowdon again some day. I have visited it about 20 years ago and I thought it was beautifull.

    Your photo seems a little bit underexposed but I believe you can easily change that in Photoshop.
    For the rest, very nice shot.

    Cheers, Jeroen

    Must admit I avoid Snowdon in the summer months, too busy - lots of other mountains around much more tranquil - great mountain when the train isn't running

    You're right about the shot being underexposed, did a curves adjustment in CS2 RAW & overdid things a little

    thanks

    After reading the feedback ( yes, I do take notice ) I've reworked the shot a little as the original post was actually a little underexposed, here's the modified version (& better I think)
