Greetings from the Critique Club!

Very interesting and unusual shot, I would be curious to see a more detailed breakdown as to how you put this together with the multiple captures.

I do agree with some comments about the right side of the image being a little blah. However, difficult to adjust the natural layout of the stream, unless you are able to cross it and/or get in the middle of it. I've seen it happen! The ambient light is nicely filtered in, and the settings are perfect for such a shot. The water creates a flowing silky leading line to the viewer and plenty of dof is evident by the size of the rocks and foliage visible.

Artistically I like the shot, but would have tried to bump up the colours a bit more to give it some punch. Advanced Editing allows for a fair bit of leeway, don't be afraid to exploit it!

Feel free to PM me with any questions,

My word - this has a 3D effect the like of which I'm not sure I've encountered before. Quite startling!

Love the clarity of this shot, the sharpness of the rocks in the foreground contrasting the cloud like water.

nice silky water. I think you should have taken this closer to the waterfall as the right of shot is rather bland and boring.
