    Too bad these didn't come with sound. Beautiful spot!

    I was really trying to slow down on these, Concentrate more on pre-planning a final vision. These were all done in LR no presets, no composite (except the pano) using some new ideas I've come up with on processing

    Yup, but in this case no ND filters used. Had them in the bag but didn't need them. This is a deep gorge up the mountain with heavy shade.

    Nice locations, good compositions, good shutter times for the various water-representations, but IMHO, the contrast between the shadows and the highlights is a bit too much, a slight bit jarring. I just do not like the way the lighting has been rendered. Very dense blacks, and very bright highlights, and a mid-tone range that just does not feel quite right.

    @Derrel Much as I'd like to claim full responsibility for the light, it's pretty much WYSIWYG. The dynamic range from the top of the gorge to bottom seemed like a gazillion stops. The blacks and shadows were lifted, the highlights lowered and selective burning and dodging on both to even out the image. Part of it may be the lower web resolution. In the original on the monitor there is a lot of detail showing in the shadows.

    Part of it may be my style as I lean more toward the extreme detail of photorealizm. In the last photo of the falls, see the ant on the log????LOL The style doesn't suit everyone.
