Water cascade at our local channel after heavy rain taken using HDR

The bridge structure is an interesting subject, Joe, but I'm not sure that the use of HDR has helped this image. I would like to see the original.
Your use of negative exposure compensation has prevented any burnout in the water.
I'm not a fan of milky water, but feel that this has been taken a bit too far, so that the water no longer looks real. You were obviously drawn to this scene because the water was so strong after the heavy rain, but the drama of the water has been lost with the "smoothing" of its rush.
I think there may be some detail to be recovered in the sky, which is a bit pale, perhaps just with the use of the burn tool.
The composition may benefit from having a bit more of the left bank within the frame, and a little more of an angle on the bridge.
Your very bold "Adrenalin Addict" logo is spoiling the image for me because my eye keeps settling upon it.
I apologise for being so negative, Joe.
I've almost stopped commenting on logos, but in this case I'll make an exception. You logo completely destroys this image. If you must use a logo, small and discrete.
Not a bad scene, but milky water is not my thing and I think the HDR has compressed the tonal range rather too much giving a heavy flat look.
uploaded a modification..... please check it out
Thankyou for uploading the original, Joe (I assume that is what it is).
I prefer it in colour, and think it's a good image that only needs a few tweaks......and no logo.
I have done a modification using that one and am pleased to say that it was possible to bring out some detail in the water flow.
There is also a slight tinge of pink, so it may have been taken just before sunset.
I adjusted highlights, shadows, brightness and colour, then gave it a levels adjustment and used the burn tool on the foreground water.
wow, that looks really nice. Yes it was just taken before sunset.
Hi Joe, - I took a look at the original. I believe this has an incorrect white balance setting, and the image should be more like the mod Ive uploaded, which is much less blue. Also removed that person on the left edge.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
