Hilton Falls near Milton, Ontario. This is my first attempt at a long exposure of a falls.

Not bad at all for a first attempt! Making that water look milky is fun, isn't it?
Nice shot! Although, to exaggerate the height a bit, I think a wider angle , set lower to the ground, and turned to portrait mode, would have a bit more impact.
I absolutely love shots like these, do you have any more?

dig how you composed the rock "frame" - well done

Thanks Justin, Ed and Vyeko.

Justin - I agree a lower perspective would have been better, however this is from a viewing platform. I wasn't into rock climbing in order to get that lower perspective.
Ed - I did try to use the rock to frame it.
Vyeko - It was a difficult exposure. Lots of dynamic range between the falls and the dark rock on right. I did the best I could to bring this out in Lightroom.

I think I like the horizonal play of water as much as the vertical. Nice!

In my mind, you did an admirable job. Nicely done.

Like the others I like this. I am intrigued by the water trails at the extreme bottom right. These could have made a subject too.

Well done. I tried to get a shot there in the fall and there had to be 100 people milling about.

Thanks everyone. There weren't that many people that day. That's probably because it is early in the season and the weather wasn't that great either.
I did get lucky in that it was low enough light to use the ND4 filter that I had. Exposure was 3.2 sec. (I did buy a ND8 filter for brighter days but I'm damned if I know what I did with it, may have to buy it again)
