Nicely captured. The frozen quality is what really sets this apart from the rest of the waterfalls :)

That looks cold! I like how the water gushes into the scene and empties out into nothingness. Good use of color to project a mood.

horsetail? Why didn't I see you shooting out there? Actually I'm not positive this is horsetail falls. Nice shot though. I'm not sure about all the negative space, seems somehow artificial.

Very dramatic! It looks like you were trying to follow 1/3 rule, but I think it would have been better if you had centered it more to reduce the larege dark area.
