Photographer’s Notes
Snoqualmie Falls, WA (USA). The hike to this spot is ˝ mile and 750 vertical feet. It was raining hard the whole way down but the rain broke briefly for the shooting. If God had intended we shoot in B&W, he wouldn’t have created Kodachrome. It’s better in color.

You really are a wizard with the iPhone. Err.....I just noticed the camera data you supplied in the photographer's comments. Nikon D3. Back to reality :) You need to change the info in the photograph information window.

Wow what an awesome place! This B&W shot is great, the people and the buildings give it the perspective that is needed. Congrats on a strong finish!

Could have worked well in portrait orientation - understand why you wouldn't use it here.

Very nice study in B&W. You've got some dust bunnies in the upper left - it is OK within the basic ruleset to clone or heal those.

This shot reminds me of Ansel Adams for some reason. You should consider that a high high compliment.
I love the little people. 10 from me

This photo shows a wonderful sense of scale, and I love the exposure used to freeze the water. Unfortunately, there are dust spots above the house/lodge that detract from the photo. Everyone gets them!
