This is really good Nick! Perfect long exposure and I really like the splash of green. Great shot.

This is gigantic with such a mellow flow and an image that deserves a much higher standing, yet out of so many entries a top 30 is good because out of all the voters, the majority agreed on its spectacular visual beauty. When number of entries get so high there is always the danger of oversight and then that 20% for those who spend the least time voting. Keep up the good quality.

I really love this pic, but I have a small suggestion. I my opinion it would have more impact if the bttom was cropped out. Good luck.

I'm not normally a waterfall person, but I got to say WOW to this one - excellent work!

Stunning for sure. I expect this to be a ribbon contender. Very dramatic
image. Congrats!

A very beautiful scene, the cottony water looks great. It seems that vegetation was brightened for effect, but I would of liked to of seen you go the other way and make it compete for attention less with the falls.

...and oh yeah, great composition.

Beautiful falls! My only nitpick would be the green bush on the left--looks a little too bright for my taste.

What a happy busy flow! 8

so very nice and clean looking. The shrub on the left really balaces out all that's filling up space on the right side.

Very nice. Love the flat light. No harsh spots.

One of the few waterfall shots that really stands out. Great use of leading lines and slow shutter speed to create a silky feel to the water.

WOW! I would love to know where this is. Amazing!

really good shot. the exposure was just right imho as you have the blurred effect of the water but you have not lost any great detail.

I would love to know where this is. The one touch of green really makes this shot. Nice job!

Awesome shot, and so powerful.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oh wow this is really beautiful. I like that you left some of the cliff in and didn't just crop it out.

Edited because I left out a word in the 2nd sentence and it didn't make sense.

The greens are a bit oversaturated IMO. It provides contrast, but it comes off as a bit "unreal". Composition and shutter speed are great . 8.

Nice place! Great exposure control on the water. I'd love to see more up and to the right. Beautiful! :)

I love it, but the framing seems awkward.
