I like this, Barbara. Most people photographing this would have seen only the water, but I particularly like how you used your wide angle to emphasize the foreground rocks, and left a slight stripe of green to frame the top. The rocks are what makes this for me. Really nice.

Nicely captured waterfall Barbara. I also like the stones/rocks in bottom right corner and I wonder if the composition wouldn't be emphasized by taking it vertically and have only right part in the image. Just my 2 cents.

Thank you Gary, Anina, Tomas, Japanalia, Eldiablo, and Scott. It was difficult keeping the boring Texas sky out of the image. My goal was to span the river and use the element of 'line' with the wide angle lens. I appreciate all the feedback!

I guess with some mighty leaps you might keep your feet dry. Nice shot.

i like how you get some of the foreground and background in the picture, it gives it a sense of scale

@Rockey: Well, it's Texas, and more of a 'cascade' but we'll take it! Thanks, Rockey.
