Apparently Hamilton ON (yes, the Hammer) has over 100 waterfalls. Here's one of them.

Um...you might want to check your white balance...unless the water was secretly blueberry flavor or something. Otherwise they look ok. I just can't get past the pastel water.

Thanks WD - silly mistake. I thought it was from the filter and didn't think to check the white balance in LR.

Lately I've become a WB nerd. It's the first thing I change in my shots if it's needed.

Looks beautiful Greg. Love how smooth you got these while still maintaining incredible detail in the rock formation.
( couldn't figure out what WD was talking about, kept looking at it like, what???, then noticed your edit note underneath)

ah, that's better. The second one has a pleasing balance and the light in the third is quite lovely. I'll be the sound this makes is pretty fab, too.

hey no prob. blue water in long exposure stuff like that is one of my pet peeves. I'm glad you were open to the suggestion.

Always...I'm here to learn. I've only been at this about a year and am fully aware that a lot of people here have forgotten more about photography than I may ever know.

Someone once told me that you need to make your first 1,000 mistakes...this just puts me one closer :).

These are very nice pictures. Love the blurred water and the step look of these falls. I will have to check them out some day as I'm not too far from Hamilton (Mississauga).

Or as Henri Cartier-Bresson put it - "Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst." :D

Lovely looking cascades. I think I prefer the first one, nice light reflecting off the rocks and water.

What a great looking fall. Love the amount of steps and you really got it pretty nicely.

I had the same issue with the blue water myself, got reminded enough here that it is the first thing I check for now and am glad it got pointed out.

OK, I'll be contrary. I like the first one best. I think it's the angle and the tightness? of the composition.

very nice captures, use to ride our bikes all over the escarpment as kids to many of those falls (grew up in Stoney Creek).
