After work this evening I went to the local state Natural area which is only about 10 minutes from the house. I had on my water shoes and was hoping to spot some blooming dogwoods along the creek bed. No such was to be had. This is a place I have photographed extensively over the past 5 years so I am always looking for a different composition. As I was wading through the creek, I was not feeling inspired until I wondered up to this little area. I finally found the composition I was looking for with the falls split into some V shaped lines receding back into the scene. It was an overcast day however I didn't notice that the clouds were parting until a very nice, soft pink highlights came out briefly at dusk to bath the scene in a nice, soft glow. This was a bracketed 3 exposure shot to preserve the soft highlights in the sky and to bring the shadows out. This is how my eyes saw this scene tonight.

Techie info: 5dmkII 17-35 sigma ex-dg at f8 iso 320 w/ CPL LR5 processed using LREnfuse to blend exposures.

Great shot, Jon. Love the mood, and the composition has wonderful parts to it. Just the top, short waterfall makes a lovely subject.

Lovely composition. I do find that the shot seems a bit too pinkish though.

Thank you kmunroe and helenica.

Helenica, it is pinkish. I could have corrected that however that was how the scene was "seen" by me. The soft dusk sky turned a soft pinkish after the sun had set and bathed the scene in that light. For me, looking for something unique from an area I visit often, the light made the scene. Obviously it (the color palette) is not for everyone however I am a sucker for pastels in nature photography, the post sunset light, and chose to reproduce the scene in post to what I experienced. Thank you for the feedback, most appreciated.
