this waterfall NEAR CONSETT
It looks a wonderful waterfall, nice composition and good use of shutter speed but sadly a good deal of the image is burnt out with no detail there.
Check the histogram after taking a shot or better still (if your camera has one) check the highlights screen.
As stated above most of the image is burnt out but there are a few ways around this.
You can shoot in aperture priority and use a large F number which will close down the aperture and give you a greater depth of field which is good on both accounts as it keeps the whole image sharp or you can use a high stop neutral density filter which will allow long exposures in bright light and stop burn out. The are a couple of good ones on the market which are the big stopper from lee filters or a 500nd filter from light workshops I think it is called. Also you could try shortening the exposure.
Also I have noticed that you have used ISO 200. reducing this to ISO 100 will also reduce the burn out.
And of course you could use a combination of two or of all three suggestions.
Hope this is useful
