    Flume Gorge was the first place I officially visited, and I can't get over just how beautiful it was. This was the view as you turned the corner and saw the entire gorge.. definitely one of those sights you can gaze at for a while (which is exactly what I did).

    Looks like a wonderful spot! While wearing my newbie hat, I will say bottom right looks dark. I would like to see more detail in those great rocks.
    Can the green moss be boosted a little?
    Love the golden leaves and soft water.

    Lovely, but............I'm falling into the 'overly done smooth water that looks like smoke camp'. Everything else is SWEETNESS for me.

    One might observe that the bottoms of gorges ARE dark, and making them all one shade makes the entire photo look totally fake...

    It's OK to have light areas and dark areas in a picture...

    Nancy, I think Sabbath hit the nail on the head. They ARE dark, but if I lightened them more than I already had, the photos becomes illogical. It's already a bit "doctored" by my use of a graduated ND. There's a fine line I toe when using filters and editing scenes like this; I want to maintain detail and tonality, but not to the point where it destroys the realistic nature of the image.

    Doctored? You mean the byproduct of a long exposure, which was necessary given the low light in the flume on a cloudy day?

    Thanks for the kind words, but I'll agree to disagree about the "doctoring."
