Been an exciting week watching this slowly rise. I'm surprised it did so well, as there's a couple of blown out areas in the falls.
This was a single image with 3 exposures tone mapped in Photomatix but I really tried to turn down the intensity and the saturation. There is actually some green desaturation in the falls. Ran it through Denoise, and gave some slight S&H, and a bit of curves and levels, sharpen, SFW.
Some of the lighting effect comes from a spot light placed under the deck I'm standing on. You can see a little shadow on the house. Got lucky that someone was home and the lights were on.
Thanks for the great comments so far.

Did you add a little light over on the right hand side of the falls or is that just the way the moon reflected? (or dawn sun?) Either way I Love this, it looks like Silk, and is just totaly enhanced by the warm inviteing look into the house.

Gorgeous setting and a very nice use of what looks like some light painting.

Obvious tripod use: Very high.

There's so much to look at here, and the house is so crisp and perfectly exposed. Very nice!

Obvious use of a tripod, or any other long-term stabilization tool (1-10 *is not the score of the shot though*): 10
Very nice water softness and sharp details in the background. Can't do this handheld!
