To those that have enjoyed the images and commented, thanks!
To those who might have shot these images slightly differently, but who managed to keep their comments professional and constructive, thanks as well.
either see if you took a faster shot or go back if u can and shoot it again.
Seriously? Who the hell do you think you are? There's a big difference between offering constructive criticism and just spouting off like an arrogant windbag; telling someone to go shoot something again simply because they took a different approach than you would have places you firmly in the latter category. I'm fairly certain that you didn't commission me to shoot this waterfall, so if it's all the same to you I think I'll stick to capturing it the way that I wanted rather than the way you seem to think I should have.
I couldn't care less if you think the water is rendered in an "extreme" way. Take a look at the work of any famous landscape photographer and chances are you will find that at some time they have shot moving water in very much the same way as I have above. I guess you think you know better than Galen Rowell, David Muench, and Frans Lanting, just to name a few? Of course they also sometimes capture water in the way you are describing, as do I. In this particular instance I chose another route.
As it happens, I have numerous other exposures at a variety of different shutter speeds. I chose the ones I did for a variety of reasons, primarily because they were closest to the aesthetic that I was trying to create. I would have even been happy to share and discuss the merits of those other images and why I did not choose them, but I'm not going to waste my time having the discussion with someone who has such a juvenile attitude. Thinking that your way is the only way, or "the right way", is laughable; especially in a medium such as photography.
To be clear, I neither need nor desire your assistance in "correcting" my images.
