    That's a good take. I like the subtle lighting of the foreground branch.

    It is indeed a great lens for the outdoors, being WR as well. I use mine for this a lot, and prefer it to the rathe14mm, which was a bit too wide for my personal taste. This is a lovely shot, and I love the foreground and middle. For me though - and I hope you don't mind me critiquing your shot - I'd lose the distracting sky at the top. The main interest is the gorgeous water and the foreground branch. Then I'd print it big!

    Hate to be a spoil sport but for me, lovely shot only spoilt by milk coming over the waterfall! It has never appealed to me and has been done to death. There you go, I've said it now, just had to get it off my chest. Humble apologies!

    I like that advice, thanks!

    Ha! To each his own. I'm a fan of the long-exposure waterfalls, and I've never been much for realism in images.

    +1 to that.
    Mushy water without a texture indicates bad photography practice. Same applies to streaky clouds in the sky. It's an art to master the correct exposure in long exposure photography, that many people are too lazy to learn. It is so easy over do it, thinking that this is a great photo, because it's sharp. Sharpness doesn't make a great photo, yet.

    I think that's rather subjective to be honest. There is no right and wrong when it comes to exposure, only opinion and preference

    I like the picture

    Nice photo ; I like the light on the water, I would include some sky ; perhaps less, I'm not a fan of long exposure either... I like your the foreground... not sure I understand it perfectly, and I would have it overlap the waterfall, but the picture as a whole is definitely is a plus, well done.
