Which do you like best?
Smaller one is better composition, while larger waterfall was really tough to get close to.

I like the first; more intimate. The second, to me, has the distracting branches mid-level on right side of waterfall.

I prefer the first waterfall. For me, there is a little too much in the foreground in the 2nd that makes it a little too distracting for my taste.

I agree with other posters, first one is a nicer photo. Better light, more delicate water. Both are great captures however.

I prefer #2, shows more of the nature scene and helps me relate more to what I am seeing.


I want to guest blog on your Landscape / Travel photography blog, PM for details

Both are pretty, but number one makes me feel like I'm there, but the extra stuff between the camera and the falls in number two says "appreciated from a distance". I feel like I want to get closer.

Both are good. I like #1 the most.

IMO, the second image is out of balance (composition). The main subject is the waterfall and not the "twigs" below. I would kinda like to see what the water is falling into. I assume, as you said, there may have been problems getting closer and higher. The exposure on both images is excellent.

I would have loved to get closer! After tromping through ankle-deep wet mud, I would have had to climb up a LARGE pile of rock/logs. I actually started climbing over the rock/log jam and when I stepped on one of the large rocks, I felt it start to rumble, followed by a cracking sound beneath me. I promptly (but carefully) turned around and went back down where I came from. On top of all that, the spray looked to be problematic above the rock/log jam.
