This is Corbett's Glenn Falls, a very nice falls (and my second time there).

I used a GND and a ND4 (or was it the 8). Might have my polarizer on too! I was trying lots of things. And I needed dark! (Stacked via the Cokin system.)

Thanks for the comments, nice score, and favs.

Nice finish, Neil! Thought I recognized the location, actually. It's a pretty distinctive place, though I don't offhand associate it with you. Congrats on top 10.

I really like this photo. My eyes are drawn to the area of swirling water. The water's movement is a welcome contrast to the lack of displayed on shore.

I love the all the little rills which down their channels fret in this and the colours are beautiful, the pure pristine white of the waterfall contrasting with the autumn reddish browns. There is just a hint of a low sun in the middle which balances the composition and lights the gold of the spinning flow. Very rich composition, very well captured.
