Stunning photo, the amount of detail is incredible! I've been visiting IFL for years, and this is definitely one of the more superb waterfall photos I've seen. I just love the serene mood.

Did you use a filter to avoid overexposure due to the slower shutter speed? Or was 1/4 second simply not slow enough to allow for potential overexposure? I'd like to know, since I'm relatively new to slr photography. Thanks for the upload!

It's actually an HDR photo, the metadata was taken from the middle exposure. I took 5 shots at f/14 and another 5 at f/18 with a slightly different composition. I shot in RAW, so there's more flexibility in exposure. I didn't have ND filters at the time, only a polarizer, which I dropped in the water. :-/ I did keep 1 set of RAWs at f/18, the middle exposure (0EV) was 2 seconds, ISO160.

Angwin is about a 50 mile drive from where I live, close but not close enough. I look forward to returning in winter, especially after a good rain storm. I took this shot in February and there wasn't much rain this year.

In my opinion, this shot would have been excellent if there wasn't so much post processing done on it. It completely ruined the image and makes it look incredibly fake. Not every shot needs to be HDR, and this is an example of one that would have been great with little to no corrections. That is just my two cents though. Nice work otherwise!

Thanks for the explanation! Do you know of any programs besides those you used that can blend exposures fairly well?

Also I would really appreciate some feedback on my Laguna Beach wallpaper that was posted about a month ago. Some tips on how I could improve it would be great! :)
