Yesterday I spent some time in southern Washington.
After the harsh direct sunlight went over the hill, I was able to get a few shots of this amazing waterfall.
I took one with a regular CPL and one with the Lee Big Stopper. Which do you like best?

#1 with just a Hoya CPL (just a few seconds)

Whoa. That is one sweet looking waterfall. I'm leaning towards the extended silkiness of #2 as my favorite.
Although I don't normally tinker with nature's hand in photographs, something inside me REALLY wants to take my chainsaw to the debris on the right.
Debris or not, super work on these captures!

I kind of like the debris. Its evident that they went right over the waterfall and then had nowhere else to go.
Plus, I'm pretty sure it would be highly illegal to mess with that kind of stuff inside a National Forest.

I like the wood on the right. It adds to the image. Not every waterfall is flawless. Good shot man.

Both of these are great. I like that #2 seems to have a bit more "pop" but i like the shutter speed of #1 for the more definition in the water. I am not a fan of shutter speeds so long that water resembles plastic and although neither of yours are to that point, #1 has a a little more detail in the pool. I always enjoy viewing your waterfall pics for your conservative choice of shutter speed. Very well done. Keep em coming

Hahaha. Hyperbole on my part, of course.
I love your waterfall captures.
Keep them coming indeed!

I think both are excellent, but I lean toward #2 a bit more.

I prefer #1, with the added detail from the faster shutter speed.

I prefer the texture of the water in #1.

Both are very nice :-)

I prefer the first one. I like the more detailed motion of the water going away from the base of the falls.

Really good captures of the falls. I prefer the first shot, I like having some of the detail in the water, with the falls in the "silkiness". Also it looks like the first one has a slightly brighter exposure, notice it in the woods in the background, which also helps the first one.
