Did you have a ND filter on? The falls look a bit blown out by the longer shutter speed.

Thanks, no ND filter used. These were taken with my little PowerShot in manual mode on a tiny tripod. It has limited F stop so I under exposed then tried to bring the shadows back out in post. Still blew out the water some. Was a work trip with a side visit to the park, didn't have room to pack all the big stuff with all the tools, etc.

The falls are all in a 3-sided canyon of sorts, makes it very high contrast, hard to get the detail in the shadow and the bright white water at the same time.

Shutter speed was 1/5 sec at F8. PowerShot SX740.

I'm curious to see what it would look like with less exposure. I think it would look better with darker shadows and the whites being right than lighter shadows and the whites being blown.
