The foreground in the second one doesn't seem important but the angle frames the shot really nicely. Wish there was more to the right. Maybe some Photoshop skills are warranted.

I'm posting 2 images of the same scene. I don't like to do this, but I keep coming back to this picture.

I went out looking for the light in the first picture. I waited more than a little bit, grinning at tourists, for the sun to drop under a cloud bank. And it did and I got a shot that I like, but it came in really hot. It took more than I thought it would in post to tone down the highlights in the falls.

While I was waiting around I snapped off a bunch of shots. It was pretty dark down in that lower bowl. Dark, flat light. But through the magic of camera raw I pulled out those shadows and what was left was a clean, soft light that balanced better with the shadowy light everywhere else.

I tried to make the first picture look like the 2nd picture in post but there's only so much you can do to change the quality of the light. I like the composition of the first one better and the light in that one is what I went out looking for, but I keep coming back to this one.

It is always difficult to get good lighting there, due the the direction the waterfall is oriented. The sun is never facing the waterfall at any time of year.

Yeah, with the southerly path the sun takes around here, that bowl the river falls into probably only gets a few dozen hours of sunlight a year.

I put up a full post in 'The Lounge' here about the light at Snoqualmie Falls. I encourage folks to read it. (Shameless plug.)

A very small waterfall at Henley Lake Masterton NZ. Probably man made I'd guess. Cross posted OMD thread. Hand held.

They toke us to the famous waterfall at lake Garda Italy, but due to the dry weeks there was almost no water flowing. You have to look twice to see the waterfall.

And my experience has been, when there happens to be good light, there is also a lot of mist to fog up the lens. Not saying there is a direct coorelation, just my bad luck.
