    Really good grab, Paul.

    Glorious sight, and nicely processed. I like the light on the rocks to the left.

    I bet it was more than a ‘grab’, though!

    Yes, that harsh contrast on the rocks is fantastic!

    Paul, lovely shot.  I’d do one thing though.  Easily done in Capture One with the burn and dodge brush.  I’d make the top part of the falls a bit lighter to match the white of the rest of the falls.  I might also try opening up detail (shadows) in the top part of the falls so my eye doesn’t dive into black. The sky is wonderful.  Also, you don’t need all the space at the bottom. so, you could crop up from the bottom a bit.  There is also an ice little tree on the bottom right.  I’d dodge that a bit to let it pop out a bit more.

    This is such a nice image.  Just making some suggestions.

    I guess the top portion of the fall was in the shade hence darker.
