Gail and I just returned from a great trip to Patagonia as well as Iguassu Falls.  Yes, I have many grand scenes of the large falls.  However, I decided to post this one first.  It is a small section of a water fall off the main one.  I love the pattern of the splash and the graphics of the rocks.  Here, in my opinion, is when a fast shutter speed better depicts the power of the water rather than the usual, standard flowing water with long shutter speeds.   Please look large as the thumbnail doesn't do the image justice. Comments most welcome.

Really nice!
I agree with your thoughts on the shutter speed here...it does indeed give a sense of power and dynamic feel to the falls.
Also...I think the greens really add to this image overall!
Looking forward to more of your images from Patagonia.

So dynamic! Love the sense of rushing water and splashes. An exciting rendition.

Agree with you Ed, love it as presented. Like seeing detail images from the falls, my eyes keep moving all around the image. Powerful capture !!!

I'm with you on this, Ed! We don't always want water portrayed as smooth silk, especially when its crashing down over rocks like this. You've portrayed the tumbling, crashing force and power of this section of the falls beautifully!

While my inclination would be to slow the shutter speed down some, the fast shutter speed really conveys the power of the waterfall. Well done!
