    Impressive.

    I really like the way the roots and rocks and the bottom of the image are softened a bit but not blurry. It really adds to the surreal nature of the scene; sort of feels like "Middle Earth".



    You've also added some hint of warmth to the image, which I like. The only issue I can see at first glance is the small flare in the center of the image. The sun-burst area is cool looking but maybe a tiny bit overexposed. Hard to say....

    thanks for the input. the softness happened somewhat by accident- i was using neat image to clean up some noise on the original and the result was what you see. instead of trashing it, i thot the outcome was pretty cool. anyway, thanks for viewing!

    You bet. By all means keep more shots like these coming. Accidental or not you've found a very interesting way to retouch your images, and with a very positive impact I'd say.

    Such a nice ethereal feel...I think this is a beautiful (artistic) shot...I wondered how it had ended up so "foggy" and misty....Is this a place you can go back to? seems as if there's nice photo ops...

    Awesome shots both. I have a "thing" for waterfalls, viewing and photographing them. This is a fantastic picture and a very nice touch in B&W. Well done. I also like the first image, the trail.
    Kinda beckons you to follow. Thanks for sharing these, they are very good indeed.

    p.s. I would have to make a nice big print of that waterfall and put it on the wall.
