Excellent view point at the Cave of the Winds! I've always wondered what shots one could get from down there and you've captured this one perfectly! Great job again on our beautiful Falls!

Honestly, Lisa - NOBODY shoots the Falls from this spot as spectacularly as you do! (and, with no water spots on the lens, either - miracle time!)

WTG with this first place winner! A truly awesome capture! I think I would be scared to go down there. It may be safer than it looks, but from here, it looks like one slip could send you right into that churning water! In fact, I just watched something on TV the other day where someone fell in and was being pushed under by the current. I think it was some kind of tourist boat that saved her as her husband looked on helplessly.

It looks like that staircase came up from out of the water and that they are not on a homage!

I have never seen Niagara from this angle. So impressive and the slow shutter (?) was an excellent choice for effects. This almost seems to have mixed media since the people should have been out of focus if this was slow F-stop. I'm impressed!

Huge congrats on such a well deserved win, Special lady!
