    I took this picture a couple of months ago. I'm not sure what to think. I'm open to all constructive criticism.

    A tighter composition would have been better, but it's so blown out.

    It is way too blown out. It's so bright it's hard to look at.
    On a good note, the waterfall itself is nice, you created the 'feeling' of the moment by making the water look like it's moving.

    I would defo. on the whole darkening the image. It hurts the eyes. Croping the top to the top of the fence makes me focus on the water falls and not the trees

    Heya Chad, welcome!
    What you need for long-exposure photography (to blur out the water) and snow is a filter!
    As it is, the two things did not go together and this photo is totally lost. The snow is so blown that no darkening in pp can salvage it.

    Look for ND_filters (this is just the very first site I came upon after putting ND filters into Google). They'll help.

    Thanks for the feedback. I think it is too blown out also. I'll probably look into getting some filters for my birthday. I was also wondering how a polarizer would work with the neutral density filters.
