Far too much sun to shoot the whole fall on this morning, so I spent some time studying it a little closer up.

While the shot is nice, I'm not crazy about the added texture; makes the waterfall flat, particularly the center section :(

This is it without the added texture.

Two methods....two results

Just returned from a week in Canada and I've never seen so many waterfalls in all my life. I'm a sucker for the long exposure shots of running water...just love the look when using an ND filter. My wife pointed out that she prefers the 'normal' shot showing the falls as they are. It is an interesting contrast...one shot gives the illusion of such a serene and tranquil waterfall...and the other shows the violent rage and force of water cascading over rocks and carving out deeper canyons. Guess it boils down to preference. Same falls here....

I use Canon gear...have several bodies and lenses and am quite pleased with them.

They are both nice images in my mind. One I view as more artistic, while the other might be considered more realistic. As you said, it boils down to a matter of taste. This is an area I've been studying for quite some time with regards to moving water. My personal preference has evolved to be in between the two you have shown here. I love the artistic rendering for a couple of reasons. To me it is just a "pretty" representation of the water, but also because it serves to highlight the surrounding structures, whether that be rock formations, foliage, or whatever. It provides a contrast in the texture that the purely realistic rendering doesn't give you in my opinion. The realistic rendering shows the power and intensity of the water much more as you indicated. I try to strike a balance between the two... smooth enough to provide that contrast with the static objects in the scene, while maintaining enough texture in the flow to give the impression of the power itself. As you said, tastes vary!
