That first image is superb. Nicely composed and executed. I love the horizontal lines of the rock face bisecting the vertical waterfall lines.

Cool images. The person in shot 1 gives a fantastic sense of scale.

Thanks everybody. These were taken with my new Canon 10-22 lens I just purchased (love that lens). Would never have been able to have fit that first picture in with the kit lens.

Marko - It is interesting you say you like the light in shot 1. It was a bright sunny day (not a cloud in the sky) that with the high dynamic range I wasn't sure I could even save this image. Worked it Lightroom and this is what I came up with. Thought later that I should maybe have tried multiple images and HDR.

AntZ - It's funny - when I took the picture I was ticked that the person at the top of the falls was there and wouldn't move. But in hindsight as you say it does give you a sense of scale.

Lovely captures Asnow, you really did them justice. Have seen most of these myself, and I know how hard they are to get a decent angle, and no people in them. Nice to see the person to show the height though. Lovely sharp lens you picked up. Good choice.

Thanks HBG. I chose this lens first as it allows me to get shots that I just can't capture with my kit lens. Later I can upgrade my zoom to probably the 70-300. For now I can get still get those shots with my 55-250, just won't be as sharp.

Oh these are nice. Love #1, having the person at the top of the falls adds to get a perspective of its size ...

Just because the light is bright doesn't make it bad if it strikes the subject in the right way as it's doing here. If I were extra fussy, I'd likely burn in the bottom left a bit. That would help hold my eye on the falls even better.
