Wonderful compositions and just enough slow shutter.

@Karl - Thanks so much of the kind words. First, you don't strike me as a newbie - you post lots of stuff I'm jealous of As for the photo - In this case I didn't use multiple images for stacking, it was for exposure, so no stacking problems due to distortion. At 14mm you do get some distortion in even a single image though. For Soco, I actually didm't do any more than LR's distortion correction. For Crabtree, I did some correction in photoshop using the transform tool's perspective option.

Newbie to 'landscapes and processing for them' I may have to pick your brain to gain some momentum on PP work, these are excellent and I don't know how to get 'here' yet
Thanks Steve.........glad I have a few that you don't

Hi Steve,

I agree with all that the images are stunning!

Can you give us more of the technical details?

Camera? Lens? ND filter and if so how many stops?

Any insights on post process to look that stunning?

Thanks
Bill

Thanks so much for all the comments

@NC Andy - Oh yeah, you gotta check these two out!

@Rich - man, one of these days I gotta get to NH - My wife wants to go so I'll have to give it a go one of these days

@Karl & Bill - I get asked about post processing a lot, but the truth is every image I do is a different series of steps. It helps that both of these waterfalls are totally gorgeous, that goes along way

I'm working on a series of "how to" videos on YouTube, most are planned with a mentality of "This is what I shoot in the field and this is how I handle it one the computer". I don't have much done yet (just started), but it's getting there. You can see my vids here. I'm going to try and post something every couple weeks when I'm in town.

As for gear, D800, Nikon 14-24, Fotodiox adapter kit w/polarizer. No ND filters on this one, it was really dark in those gorges first thing in the morning and last thing at night!

Steve, I grew up in Virginia and spent much of my time hiking around the Blue Ridge Mountains with my Dad and brothers before the Air Force brought me out to Utah.

Thanks for all the fantastic stuff you post, it brings back great memories.

#2 is pretty good, but feels a bit too centered I think. #1 is freakin awesome. The composition feels powerful and has depth. The falls come together in a very imposing manner that feels intimidating in a way. My eye bounces between them and sometimes ventures out to explore the rest of the scene, but comes back to the falls.

My only nit-pick is that the green/yellows are a bit strong top-center over the fall and it brings attention to the moving leaves to the top right-center which are a bit distracting. I feel like that's the only thing holding the shot back from perfection. Nice work

Thanks again to everyone for all the kind words and feedback

@Scott - Thank

@ Sneakyracer - Thanks

@Justin - Man, what an awesome place to grow up!

@Slabshaft - Thanks for your feedback Crabtree was tricky. I was looking for a non-centered comp when I was there, just couldn't find one I liked. I either had a tree in the way or I didn't have a strong foreground. So, I went for centered up, not something I usually do, but I think it was the best choice here.

As for Soco - that one was tricky too. There was a huge range of exposure here, so the top over the falls ended up a bit hotter than I liked. And those blowing leaves - arrgh - I agree. I may have to find a way to tone them down or something.

@CarlG - Thanks

Steve great shots!, but number two is killer for me. Just something about that waterfall cascading down.

Awesome shots as usual Steve. The first one is magical, and I prefer its complexity compared to the second

Very interesting perspective on Crabtree Falls. Been there many times, and I've never seen it with that much water. Very wet summer here indeed.

Thanks for the kind words Justin

Thanks Grog13 - It was my first time there this year, but from other photos I've seen I knew I had a LOT of water for my shot - made my day when I first saw it
