Response:
Wonderfully done Darren. I liked the composition and the lighting on this. Also like the way the water is coming down in different stages and the way you captured it. Excellent image. Wonder how far this is from my in laws. Hmmm . . . I'll have to check.

  WOW oh WOW!!! This is one of your very best IMHO! I just absolutely love the way you combine dark shadows with light. The long exposure on the water is perfect and the mossy rocks really frame the image nicely. Wonderfully done. Excellent! Perfect!
