    hmm yea I should post the settings...

    f/25, 1sec exposure, ISO 100, 70mm focal length, Tripod mounted, 2 sec timer. Soon Ill have a release cable and wont need the timer...:)

    Shot in RAW, converted on CS3, mostly normal adjustments, 50/100 clarity to make details pop out better. Not cropped, just re-sized.

    Personally of all the pictures I took of the falls, for these smaller falls, 1 second looks to be the PERFECT amount of time to get the look I was after. I have the pic set as my desktop wallpaper, and it looks even better on my 19" monitor!

    Thanks for the comments! :)

    Nailed. It. Very good. The only critique I would have is there looks to be more of it and my mind wants to see it all. That being said there is clear subject I think and the crop works.

    My recent attempts at catching a cataract were nowhere near as good.

    Kudos!

    Yes, your right there was a bit more...but most of that was in the bright sunlight, and I was trying to keep exposure, So I only fit the shaded area in the viewfinder :)

    The trees at top are kind of annoying, but cropping them out would cut out a lot of good detail. Besides, my eyes seem to be drawn to the flowing water, dont notice the trees unless I actually look :)

    Love it. I have toured most of the waterfalls in north Georgia and some in South Carolina and Tennessee. I think they might be one of my favorite subjects. So to make a long story longer ... nailed it.Nice shot. I would like to see more of it as stated by someone else before me
