Quite an impressive image with the water as the main subject. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

Nice water fall, but the rock is very dark and the sky has no color.

Excellent photograph. I especially like having the falls off set to the center of the image. Would love to see this place in person.

This one doesn't work for me, I'm afraid. The milky texture of the water doesn't sit well with the bleakness of the rocks.

There's an easy "wow" factor to be had from a slow exposure of running water, but something more is needed to make a really great photo.

This shot is beautiful. I love the soft water and the line it takes across the photo. I wish the rest of the rocks were a bit brighter. Looks like it might have been a rough time of day for photos (ie the overcast looking sky and dark rocks), but great composition.

I love the contrast between the water and the rocks in this picture, as well as the feeling I get from looking at the water... it looks like you could just go jump in it and it would be soft. Keep up the good work!

Contrast is a bit low, and the sky seems like it should be a singular color, but isn't.

The location of the waterfall, cliff and stream are great!

Best of the water falls.

Classical 'soft water' shot, done fairly well. The only slight distraction for me is the blow out sky above the waterfall. The image would have worked better IMO if you'd managed to capture a contrasting blue sky, or an orange sunrise/sunset sky instead.

This is a pretty image. The waterfall is placed nicely within the overall composition with the water flowing down and thru the image. Too bad you couldn't have gotten a more dramatic sky for this shoot. Not that it's anything you could have controlled - just an observation. As for the subject, yes I guess it fits the challenge technically - but it's not quite as exciting as some other subjects I've seen in the challenge with a bit more action. This is kind of static.

Best of luck to you in the challenge.
