Really nice job on this one Bob. Shutter speed is perfect and the composition flows as nicely as the water. Well done!

I agree with Mike and will also mention the colors really pop. Excellent shot.

Thanks Dave & Mike for the comments.
This water falls is very difficult to locate and access but it was worth it.
I just started to use the Pentax Digital Camera utility version 4.2 to convert the PEF and have found the custom image setting for landscape really gives a pop to the colours. Also the exposure dodge function allowed me to bring out some brightness to the darker areas.

I like it a lot. The lighting is lovely and the shutter speed is perfect as Mike said.
