Great shots. I've been there and didn't do so well.

Thanks for the comments. Kind of an interesting park for where it is. I remember seeing the first photos of this place thinking that it wouldn't be that great, but that it was waterfalls so it wouldn't be all that bad. But these are some fairly powerful falls for something that you see in the middle of a city park. Created quite the breeze as the water movess much faster through here than I thought it was going to.

I live in Sioux Falls, and the falls are much stronger this year than most. Nice captures.

Beautiful! What kind of ND filter and how long were your exposures? Thanks.

No filters used. Just waited until dusk and the sun sets behind where I was pointing. Most exposures were around 1-2 seconds. If I had used a .9 the skies would have really exploded. Even a .6 would have been good. The one photo where no detail is lost in the sky is a very lightly processed HDR.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. This is one of those that will end up on my wall!

Sioux Falls is a great little town. So much to do in such a little space. I live in Duluth MN and it seems like there was just so much more in Sioux Falls than Duluth. The water was really strong down there. One thing I was amazed by was the trickles of water that run around the whole park. Makes me wonder where some of it comes from. In the spring after the snow melt is the water higher? Does it move around the walking area in the middle?

The water does get high after the snow melts, but I'm not sure how much flooding there is onto the path. I don't go there very often.

I was going to stay around for the lazer light show, but When I found out that it didn't start until 9:30 I was out. I had to be to work by 7:AM so I had to hit the hotel. I would imagine it runs around there quite a bit, you can see remnants of where the water flows at high times. Pretty neat.

But like anything, when it is around you everyday, you really don't care all that much. It is like Lake Superior for me. :lol:

I love #2 with the exception of the walkway cutting off the tower. They always put those damn things in the way of a good shot. Great exposure and colors. Thanks for sharing.
