Hi JAson

This is quite beautiful IMHO. Nice lead, shutter speed and comp. Greens are a bit too saturated for me but it gives the image a good kick anyway. There also might be a bit too much blue in the white water??

well done

Tranquil image, nice feel to it. Agree with Don about the over saturated greens, especially in the upper left hand section.

Hi Jason, beautiful scene and killer low angle perspective. As mentioned toning down the greens is all it needs. Love it!

Lovely composition and mood, Jason! Glad you are posting again... :5
I too would tone down the greens just minutely - I know how vibrant these forests can be though. Need to get back there!

Thank you boys for the comments and views... yip maybe a bit oversat'ed but very similiar (as Morkel mention) to the real deal...

Great composition and I like smooth water created by the longer exposure.

Beautiful shot. Love how you found the water cascading over the fallen tree itself on the back. A little oversaturated for my taste, but very nicely done nonetheless.
