Hi, nice lead in line across the falls .. though for some reason this just isnt totally working for me ... i think i may have pref this in a portrait orientation ... i know these falls and i know it can be difficult to get a good shot here tho .... the shutter speed looks about right .. its just the composition thats letting it down for me .. did you take any other shots on this shoot?? if so maybe you can upload another shot next week, or a shot into readers gallery and point us in its direction?

Composition nearly there, I'd dip the camera (not in the water, I mean) to get a little more of the falls in the foreground for a little more depth. Also, the strong sun has burn't out so much of the white water which is the biggest killer.

What I love about this is the rich colour of the peat. You could possibly have avoided some of the burnt-out water by using a slightly faster shutter speed, but in return you'd then lose some of the sense of movement. Nothing wrong with the comp IMO, though I agree you could get a bit lower. Finally, and this could just be my tired eyes or my monitor, there semms to be a very slight blue cast(which could easily be fixed)

Thanks for the critiques, the burnout is difficult to contol with digital capture ,neg film still has a wider latitude for this type of shot, funily enough I have both the other shots suggested will download them but little bit hairy with 5D inches from splashing water.
