This place was almost magical. This setting was no more then 200' from the back of the cabin, quite loud actually. I spent time shooting in this small stream for two days. My feet were wet more then they were dry. We have already talked about going again. Thanks for all your help! I have some shots from the Smokies I will post soon also. It was a great trip.
I like the way the water is rendered, not too soft. I really like the focus on the water/mossy rock and the fact that you did not bring up the shadows in the forest too much. You also have the added bonus of that streak of water coming from the upper falls and flowing into the lower one. That curving flow really adds the finishing touch to a really nice image.
Now that's what I call a water feature. How lucky to have this right in the back yard. This is a beautiful shot. One minor, and I mean minor, nit. I would like to see the rest of the rock that's cut off by the right edge of the frame. I told you it was minor. Ignore me if you like. Nicely done.
Thanks Scottie for your comments as always. I thought that about the rock the first time I viewed the image as well. I need to get a wider lens, the image is uncropped. The locations I was standing in was fixed, I was in the water. Swinging the camera to the right looses the the foreground anchor on the left. The best I can guess is I would have needed 18-20mm to include the whole rock and not make it look cramped. A wide fx lens is a tough and pricey choice these days. I would like the 12-24 2.8 but it is out of budget. 16-35 may be where I wind up.
