[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I returned to one of my favorite waterfall streams today. The snowpack is just beginning to melt, so the water levels are a bit higher and will continue that way for the next month or so.
This is a 4 shot pano, and panos are kind of tricky with close-ups of waterfalls, since the waterflow isn't 100% consistent, so slight variations occur from shot to shot.
Fortunately the blend turned out quite well with only minor cloning needing to be done.
A Circular Polarizer was used to bring the lens down a couple stops for a longer shutter speed and smaller aperture.

Hi Tim

Nice shot! The rock in the foreground and the moss in the background act as great anchors for the photograph. Nice composition and sharpness



Hi Tim,
I like the motion in this photo. It suits the fall perfectly. The clean composition with the one rock in the FG is very effective. The photo does look dark to me, I think you need to reset you white point on levels.

lovely scene, well done here

I think I agree with Niek's ideas. This is a nicely stitched image. I think the image lack a focal point. I tried a workshop for fun.
