Laurie from New Jersey, United States

It looks like a beautiful peaceful place. Lovely photo.

18 May 2009 11:54am

@Laurie: Thank you; it is a peaceful place early in the morning. At this time of year, there are huge crowds in the middle of the day, especially at the more famous falls.

Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld (Old Pembroke Dock boy,Wales), Germany

i´m loving these excellent slow shutter speed water shots.Theres so much detail in everyone of them and the feeling of movement in the water adds to it all.Great stuff.

What a fantastic place to sit and just absorb the sounds. The color is amazing on each of these images!

18 May 2009 2:24pm

@Cricket-Tammy: Thanks, Tammy.

ordinaryimages from Kentucky Bluegrass, United States

I prefer the natural colour here, which allows the eye to follow the ribbon of the stream. best...jerry

18 May 2009 2:50pm

@ordinaryimages: Thanks, Jerry. It's interesting how over a period of time, we come to recognize not only a person's style but their preferences; we have a pretty good idea what people are going to say before they say it.

Yvonne S. from Tilburg, Netherlands

Fresh green colors!

Don from spokane, United States

I like how we can see the source of this cascading stream. Very attractive waterfall against the greens of the trees.

18 May 2009 4:12pm

@Don: There is another falls higher up called Fairy Falls that flows into Wahkeena Creek above the top that you see.

marc battault from clermont ferrand, France

@Yvon: Thank, Yvon.

xavier cardell from menorca-barcelona, Spain

You've been really succesful today with your capture. It's a great job. Did you try ISO100 1/2 sec.? Brilliant tripod work

18 May 2009 7:23pm

@xavier cardell: Thanks. No, the D700 works best at ISO200. You can't get this silky look (at least I can't) without a tripod.

observing from North West, United Kingdom

That's a really excellent POV, capturing the falls from high up right down to the forest floor. Super shot.

18 May 2009 7:43pm

@observing: Thanks. The f/22 created the DOF; plus, I focus about 1/3 of the way into the shot. Because I obsess about getting the foreground sharp, I sometimes mess up on the distance sharpness.

dkc from Xanthi, Greece

You are so lucky to be in that beautiful place....We are lucky too to have you here sharing this great photo with us...

18 May 2009 7:54pm

@dkc: Thank you, Dimitris; yes, I am lucky to live where I do.

Denise from Duncannon, United States

I can smell the fresh air and moisture in the air. What a beautiful place to be, wonderfully caught on film.

18 May 2009 8:49pm

@Denise: Or memory card; thanks, Denise.
