Both are very well done, I prefer the second tho. It adds some clarity to the water.

Thank you and I totally agree. I hate this fad of substituting marshmallow creme for nice clear running water.

I saw the "marshmallow creme" a lot during the early 2000s and didn't like it then either. I hope it isn't making a comeback. I too like the second image better, but wish the depth of field also included the foreground rock.

I like the first one much better, but then, I always preferred Mortensen to Adams! The textures make it for me.

Thank you and like previous I have to agree. My brain simply had a shut down or something because I chimped the thing, declared magnificent, pulled up the tripod and trekked on down the trail....brain shut down!

I like the marshmallow cream much more than the number two image, cream aside, the number 2 image has no sharp focus in the subject area or anywhere else that alone kills for me.

As for the marshmallow cream, I think the soft milk like texture plays well against the sharply focused rock IWO the falling water.

Of the two I prefer the first. It's a bit long of an exposure maybe 1/2 sec might have been better, to have a bit less of a cotton candy effect. But overall it's nice.

For me, the two images are not the same though. For me, it's the contrast between the blurred water and the crisp rocks all around, and also the composition, that makes image one better than the second image. The second image has less dof, which throws me a bit and also I prefer the composition in the first image over the second somehow. The rocks around the water keep my eye going in a circle around the image, the rock on the bottom keeps bringing me back onto the water. It works for me!

Well that's my opinion, and you know how much that's worth. Lol not much.
