Nothing like taking a postcard picture and having your way with it.

Very nice!

That wide angle really plays nicely with the foreground sweep of water - you're becoming a bit of a master at this whole editing thing. Absolutely did not deserve a tighter crop - the water is the whole reason for that damn dam's being, and deserves equal billing. You did both proud.

Yes, it does look damn old.

I'm not normally a fan of waterfalls but this one (yeah, OK, it's a damn dam) really caught my eye. Came back to see how you did the toning - how did you do the toning?? Is it split-toned or whatever that's called? Excellent use of the very fine 10-22, too.

I like the trees in the background and the softness of the water.

The post processing looks great with the water, but the top half of the photo doesn't work as well.

Powerful, perhaps a bit overprocessed but still nice. 7.

This is a very nice shot, and I imagine it's going to do pretty well and quite possibly ribbon.

The whole thing has quite a glassy, frozen look about it, which is clever because there isn't actually any ice in the shot. I think you've timed this exposure well, it's not over the top smooth, but long enough to make it really interesting.

Very nice but I may have cropped tighter on the dam.

i like how the steps are covered by little waterfalls. the water shows shape and texture. the roughness of the water makes me think it has a strong current.

Nice shot, the water color really gets my attention.

Dramatic composition. Love the way the white froth and spray cascading over the rough stone of the dam wall creates a midpoint between the dark green turmoil of the water and the somberness of the forest on the far shore. 8
