I like photographing waterfalls, although I rarely go beyond a half second for expsure.

I used a stack of ND8 filters to do this one. Postprocessing: WB correction (ND filters weren't neutral), curves, shift yellows toward green and desaturate, USM for contrast, resize, USM for sharpness, save "for web".

Even with an ND8 filter, this still had to be a late evening/morning capture. Nicely captured, although I would have liked to have seen more of the water at the bottom of the falls. Nice image.

I am a huge fan of this type of waterfall image. Like this image a lot. Color and water motion nice, sharpness so so yet shows amazingly little movement during the longer exposure. I would have expected more water motion for an exposure that long but like the result.

Mmm, I know what you mean, having used ND8 in some of my outtakes and in waterfall shots at other times. I quite like the nice generally-even lighting on this (i.e. no particular "hot spots" of foliage with the rest being quite dark), well visualised and composed.
