I like it, but you might want to check the white balance. It seems way too cool here so the water looks blue.

I was going to say the same thing as WD about the WB. Nice detail/clarity in the rocks. Very cool the way they are 'pancaked' like that. Nice exposure in the falls too.

Nice exposure. I can agree with the white balance now that they have educated me on it. :D

Even though it is a bit blue with the WB, I love it! I love waterfalls and I love this composition and those rocks are amazing! Well done.

Well, Matt, Olivier Du Tres, whose seminar I had the privilege to attend this weekend purposely pushes his colour to the blue side then uses a red filter to create really dramatic B&W Landscapes. It is a lovely shot though. :) Have you thought about a B&W conversion?

Thanks for all your kind words, friends. It's kinda weird, I used "Daylight" setting on the camera (thought when shooting in RAW this does not really make a difference, I suppose); then in the conversion I used "Daylight" again. So this made it somewhat warmer. The shot, however, was taken late in the afternoon, almost at dusk, and there was a bit of a cloud. So I am attaching an image, processed the very same way, except I used the "cloudy" setting for the white balance this time, and played a bit with dodge and burn .... the water is actually pretty blue/green in that pool.
