Quite beautiful. Excellent compositon. Visually, I started in the center and slowly moved outward. The vignette effect works well as well as the arching trees. Technically well done.

WOW. Beautiful setting for this romantic picture. Love the way the branches arch together to frame the waterfall.

Thanks to all of you for your kind remarks. I have to admit that this was a picture I almost didn't take because it was so much work changing lenses on a precarious slope. And when I took it I didn't think it would be any better than the others I had already taken. It wan't until I put it on the computer screen that it really popped out. Thanks again!

This a is a great capture, though it doesn't even look real, especially the way the water is displayed, how did you get that picture? It's awesome,

Jessi,
Yes I enhanced this photo by adjusting the levels settings in Photoshop. I did some cloning to take out some unwanted bush limbs. This is the result. I have had a 20 x 30 inch blow up of this photo and it is really stunning in a beautiful frame on my living room wall.
Thanks for your interest. AIV

BREATHTAKING!
I don't use that word lightly! This image is so beautiful that I literally hold my breath so that I can prolong the experience. What a blessig! I want it on my livingroom wall!
It looks so private; I can hear the water & feel the wetness on my skin.
Good photoshop work, too!)Thank you for sharing, Alton!

Thank you so much Betsy,
I have another 20 x 30 with a beautiful $500 frame. Make me an offer and you can have one on your wall.

Thanks again for your wonderful compliment Betsy.

Alton,
I love the West and I love outdoors so I love your gallery shots. This one another so well done, the bush creating a frame, very nice. Rich colors but not over done, in my opinion.

This picture is highly surreal. I feel as if there should be an angel floating down just in front of the waterfall, well done! :)
