I took on board Bill's suggestion about last nights upload from the same location and applied the rules he suggested with my own slight variation.....

I set the levels at: 15, 1.08 and 242 then a duplicate layer with a "S" adjustment in curves and opacity set to 60%. I've gotta agree with Bill....it gives it more punch. So a big thanks to BillyGoatGruff

The positioning of the two leaves instantly adds interest, before you are whisked upstream to the perfectly exposed cascades..
