This is Kaaterskill falls. It's a beautiful two tiered falls in the Catskills of NY. The water was raging the day I was there--making it hard to take a picture from close up, since the mist kept getting on my lens (well, my Cokin filter). I fortunately had two lens cloths with me, and had to wipe the filter off after every shot. But it was beautiful!

Here's a few seconds of video from the top of the falls (first two shots) and the bottoms up view. You can see the mist and hear the roar. The video was taken with my new D90 of course!

Wow how did I miss this one? I love your composition, plus the PP is awesome! Wonderful lighting combined with the mist and colors give this beautiful image a magical feeling! I can't believe this didn't ribbon, imo.

Absolutely masterful. A true study in art from top to bottom. Surprised this did not finish higher...

7 - Very nice. The upper right darker area dominates a little too much and throws the overall balance out in my opinion.
