    Thank you so much for your e-mail and for your work on the photo. I really appreciate it, and will try to get to the bottom of the magenta issue. I'm beginning to think that it might have to do with the choices I made in Topaz 5, but your work will certainly help to track it down.

    Lo... i actually had this in and out of my favorites. I did like it, but I think SteveBee said it... a little too warm... Although i am sure there was some yellow in the waterfall, it is just too much as it made the water look dirty. Actually even if water is dirty the light foamy bubbles it makes is very close to white (very slightly yellow), bar the white in shadow that should have a slight blue tint to it... Also once again I find a lot of Purple and Magenta in your photo, similar to some of your other entries, which is not accurate. To help demonstrate what I mean, I downloaded your image and correct the WB and selectively desaturated the water from a little yellow. I also removed all Magenta / Purple from your image.. Dropped the clarity a bit because it help emphasize the mist produced from the water spray, but then increased the contrast and adjusted the white point to correct the histogram... I can share this on outtakes if you like but I emailed you the edited version for your reference... hope it helps. I only did this because I feel your photo is actually quite strong compositionally and has lots of potential.

    Lovely scene. Needs a little more contrast to make it pop and I think cropping to sky out would make it even better.

    Impressive waterfall. The WB strikes me as too warm so the water and clouds are not white. Also it would be nice if the tree branches -- at least the one in the center -- didn't intrude into the frame.

    A majestic scene, and oddly, the reflection looks sharper than the rest of the image which could use a little sharpening.

    What a powerful looking waterfall! Trees are beautiful too. There is a slight yellow tint to the image, I think.

    An impressive waterfall, but I wonder if pointing the camera more to the right would show more of the interesting mist effects we're seeing some of now. Focus is a bit soft.

    Great colours, nice framing; I can almost hear the water. In my TT.

    Beautiful landscape image, and wonderful capture of the power of these falls. There are so many "Bridal Falls" in the world; I hope you tell us at the completion of this challenge where these actually are located. Don't know if you could have zoomed in a bit more to get the branches out of the picture. For me, they are somewhat of a distraction.

    Splendid use of framing between the tree branches and the water!
