White Balance, contrast, highlights & shadow, reduced saturation, sharpened, defringed, cropped 4:3 and removed midstream rock. There are fish in this water so added a fish-hawk for an added element of life and interest.

Turned highlights all the way down. Bumped shadows a touch. Lifted contrast and clarity as well as adding a bit of dehaze and NR. Also messed about with the various colors with regard to saturation. Dropped a half stop off exposure as well. And lens profile correction. Didn't feel the need to crop anything out. Seems well composed to my eye SOOC.

Adjust highlights, shadows, black and white points and dehaze in ACR. Also adjust white balance to enhance the reds in the rocks and warm things up a little. In Photoshop, added a little pop using Photoninja plugin as well as ColorEfex 4. Remove CA/fringing and finally, removed mid-stream rock since it seemed more distracting than adding anything to the image.

I was bored so I wanted to give this a try. Adjusted white balance, contrast, shadows and massively decreased highlights. Also dehazed in photoshop. Obviously cropped and removed the log and then did some light tone mapping.

ACR for lens correction and CA -> save as DNG and then tonemap with SNS-HDR (save as TIF).

Transfer to Photosjop -> Levels -> Recover Highlights -> Nik Tonal Contrast filter -> Haze removal -> Topaz Detail to improve detail in the falls -> remove log -> Sponge Toool.

Reduced exposure, highlights, shadows, adjusted wight balance, increased saturation and clarity in Photo Shop CC. Added things normally removed from photos. Processed it in Color Efex Pro. Did layer overlay and 16x9 crop in Paint Shop Pro. Saved it as jpg, uploaded to Smugmug and watched the detail fall apart when posted.
