Legendary image of a classic place. You're are handling the negative film conversions extremely well. One of your best!
Ps. Did you keep notes on your metering for this image? I'd be very interested in how much range you got out of Ektar.
While scanning color neg, I set the levels independently for each channel rather than using any profiles. I've done all my color neg scanning with the default Epson software. It takes a bit of fiddling, but I do like the tonality much better than slide film. I shot this same scene on slide film, and the shadows in the foreground got a bit too dark, but it would still be workable.
There wasn't much tonal range for this shot. With exception of the extreme shadows deep within the cascade, everything was well within range of even slide film. A cliff behind me and to the left was illuminated by direct light, and created some wonderful reflected light. I believe I used the sandy bank with the shrubs as my neutral tone for spot metering. The leaves on the tree where somewhere around +1, and I know the deepest shadows in the foreground falls was around -4. I have tonality within those shadows if I wish to show it -- they're not entirely black.
