Very nice. West Fork?

A good image, Alatoo.
I'm sorta wishing for a wider view, though, because that lower "waterfall" is so tantalizing.

Sasha, I like what you have done to take what would otherwise be considered annoying clutter and made it the foreground plane of the image, for which the creek becomes just the backdrop. I'm not so sure it completely works in this case, perhaps because it is still relatively sparse, but I'd like the see the idea explored more. I also get the monochrome reference, although that isn't what struck me first. But I still like this attempt to explore a non-traditional approach to landscape composition.

Thanks, Bill. No, it's not West Fork, but close, about 2 miles south

Thank you, Charlie. Taking this picture was quite a challenge, because of the wind. The tree kept moving, but I wanted longer exposure for blurred water.
Agree that wider view would be good but the geometry of the place does not really allow much maneuvering. May be wider lens...

Dave, thank you for the detailed comment. That's exactly a kind of critique I am looking for. I realize that the composition had a big risk of looking clattered but could not pass the sycamore fruits - think of them as my trademark

Hey Sasha,

What a sweet location, and I think you worked a difficult subject very well. My only wish was that there was more on the bottom. The bottom cascade really feels cut off there.
