Very nice. Really good exposure on all of those. And I really like the stream turning at the bottom right of that last one.

Thank you, I appreciate the compliments. The first one is of two shots. One exposed for the hill, and the other for the water. I combined them as layers and erased the higher exposed water to blend the layers. Not sure if this was the best method?

Also, from my gear post, do you think these photos would have benefited from a polarizer and if so what would it have improved?

Thanks, Dave

The water level was much lower when I was here. Here is a picture from October 2013.

I love the browns and reds in that shot, as well as the depth (foreground and background in focus)!

Pretty! I think I like this waterfall better in low water, with all those mini ledges. High water it's just a blur.

Finally made it to Childs Park. It is worth the trip. The park was converted from a State Park to a National Park. A simple hike with three significant waterfalls. The water flow was strong and the lighting was harsh, however I did manage to get a few worthwhile pictures.

Here is a picture of the original entrance to the park and also part of the Mill that once was here.

Wow! Looks like a neat place to explore.
