Waterfall: Which one do you like best?

I would love your feedback on the waterfalls… something I have not practiced as much as clouds 🙂  Your preference and why, and any tips you would like to share.

One is shot with a 1.3 sec,  shutter speed at f22 and processed softly, the second one is shot with shutter speed of 1/5 at f11 and processed with stronger contrasts.

  1. I prefer the second image, simply because it shows more detail. I think that too much softening prohibits the viewer from seeing how fast the water is flowing or how deep it is.

    I like the first one. Lends a dreamy quality to the forest, which I like.

    Darlisa, I think your eye goes immediately to the water fall in #1, where in #2 your eye first focuses on the moss covered logs and then works it way back to the waterfall. I prefer #2 also. 🙂

    Ah #2 is, for me, more appealing: crisper, deeper color with more clarity in the rapids closer to camera. You go to nice places!

  5. one of my favorite waterfalls! yes, no 2 is the best. theres something about the green of the moss in the front (in no 1), it just feels “off”. the waterfall is best in no 2 also
