Fantastic rainbow in the second one... the first looks like a great waterfall but the composition doesn't really strike me that much - hard to say how I think it could be more aesthetic (it's almost 3am so brain is a little fuzzy).. perhaps a little wider. Hrm.

Thanks. I take your point. I did try alternative compositions with the second waterfall but did not think to try for one with the first, so I've got quite a typical looking waterfall shot.

well...may be since I am still learning and guess will be forever, I still think that the first image is a nice one....it shows the force with which its falling (atleast thats what it appears to me..) and I love the blue sky that you've got in this one...and the sharpness you've acheived...

its a very nice image IMO... :)

Thanks Avi.

The dark blue sky was because I blended two exposures for this. The sharpness and contrast comes from the Clarify tool in Paint Shop Pro. It can produce quite dramatic effects and it's easy to go overboard with it, but I tried to get the right balance.

both good shots George, I also like the first because of the falling water....I was going to say it's an HDR but read your comment on blended exp. This has left some artifacts along the top edge of the rocks....still nice though. The second shot is a fantastic rainbow indeed.

Thanks very much, that's a good point, I was a bit careless with the blending. I will try to repair that part.

Dam that looks cold. #1 I like the movement of the water gives it a sence of power. A smaller waterfall would not have that effect. #2 is very unique and works well.

I know what you are talkin about now...I remember your explanation on "blended exposures".. :)

Thanks. I guess I was lucky to have used just the right shutter speed to capture some movement without blurring the water too much.

What were your exposures for the two blended images in the first shot?

Also, to the left of the 'main' waterfall, are those two smaller streams of water? Or is it mist? I can't tell.

This was one exposure, I just adjusted the exposure of the RAW file. They were about 0.5 stops apart, not as much as usual.

Yes, there were plenty of smaller falls all along the cliff, not just here but along much of the south coast.
