I usually only do motorsports photography but got the bug to try something new this morning, so I headed to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and tried my hand at shooting some waterfalls. I am pleased with them but would love any tips that would make them better since I'm just starting out...

I like! Nice compositions; #1 could use some lightening in the upper half, IMO.

These are nice and I really like #3, but they are cropped a little to closely for me. Maybe you could use a wider lens and get a bit more of the surrounding terrain in the shots to provide a better context for the waterfalls.

I agree with the lightening of #1. Also #1 looks a bit crooked; looks like it's leaning to the left.

Nice. I just did some of these too. #1 is def tilted - the water looks like it is flowing up hill! LOL!

#3 is my fav (not sure it is quite level also).

Shutter speed really conveys a sense of motion... Things happen a little slower than next to a track, eh?

Definitely....Wasn't used to my ears screaming with running water sounds rather than horsepower, still alot of fun to shoot.
