I like the colors of the vegetation against the sky and this unusual angle for photographing a waterfall. I liked this more after I removed the excessive distortion that is caused by the camera's 16 mm lens pointing so sharply upward. In particular I find it distressing that the trees on on either side point so sharply towards the center. Here I've removed some of this distortion, which, for me, results in a more natural and comfortable feeling.   Posted: 01/06/2022 19:45:12

I like both versions. The very distorted on has the trees accentuating the fall. It does add tension to the photo. The fixed version is more realistic.

I like both images, I feel it's going with a wide angle shot or a straight shot ,not using using a lens ,which is not as wide as a 16mm lens It's smarter of choice. Both are good shots.   Posted: 01/07/2022 14:48:56

I like the original best. I like the wide angle look. I love the fall colors and the way the trees seem to be embracing the water fall. I also like the way the trees and the sky seem to go into infinity.

I like the original best. I think it is more creative and emphasizes the flow of the water. The image appears sharp throughout and I like the colors, the detail in the trees and the texture of the rocks. The sky is a beautiful color and contrasts nicely with the rest of the image. You might consider cropping some from the top so the waterfall isn't so close to cutting the image in half. I think that would strengthen the composition. Very nice.   Posted: 01/17/2022 19:09:47
