I did some waterfall shooting this past long weekend. I shot two waterfalls in one day, and this was the first waterfall I shot. The lighting was perfect because it was pouring rain ALL day, but that also made the ground and rocks very slippery and dangerous. C&C welcome on all of these.

Mr. G, first off, great set of images. That area is simply spectacular and I'd love to shoot it sometime (just seems I am always on a bike when I am out that way). Looks like you had some good conditions and the results bear it out. I'll try to offer a few thoughts...

1. Solid shot. I might bring down the lighting on the rocks surrounding the falls a tiny bit but otherwise, I love it.

2. Great idea but the plant between the trees kills it for me. If it wasn't there, I think you'd need to step to your left slightly to move the falls onto a 1/3 intersection. its a rule that can be broken but I think its needed here since the foreground is so prominent that you'll otherwise lose your subject.

3. Maybe the best of the bunch. I'd bump the blacks a tiny bit and bring down the mids in the rocks and then hang it up on the wall.

4. A bit busy but otherwise a nice shot.

5. Rivals (and maybe beats 3) as my favorite. You could bring down the foreground brightness slightly but that's the only thing I'd change. This shot IS the PNW!

6. and 7. Nice enouch shots but not ones that got me saying wow like 3 and 5.

Hope that helps and thanks for sharing some fantastic images.

Excellent series Mr. G. Very fine compositions on these! I love the framing on the 6th with the logs....Well done on all of them!

Hey, thanks so much for the feedback. That really helps. I do plan on going back soon to try out some new comps and improve on others.

Thanks a lot. I wasn't sure about the logs, but it couldn't hurt to try right? :D
