    ahhhh, I loved and missed them! To tell you the truth, I loved that last one so much years ago when you first posted them, that I save it and occasionally still looked back at it

    edit: by the way, I noticed that for all three of the pictures, different emotions are evoked. The first one is more of an aggressive vibe, like someone pushing you out of their way to keep moving forward. The second one is power-epitomized. The third picture is the most serene of all.

    Beautiful. Stunning. Humbling. Inspiring. Quiet and passionate. For myself, I can see all three evoking different feelings depending on my mood or even various kinds of feelings/ideas all at once.

    Currently, to narrow them for now, I can see the first one as Focus enabling one to go forward with clear vision, which will spread out eventually. The second one as Patience while going from step to step, working through the barriers to get the goal of reaching all. The third one is a quiet and self-centered Bliss separated from the outside world by a veil...perhaps because the focus and patience led to eventual bliss (oh I'm so silly, I know! and I think I INFJ-ed them all!!! Interesting!!)

    And they all might change when next I view them too, heeeee!

    Where did those colors come from? They seem quite bright and unusual for a waterfall, but maybe the rocks are just different from what I am used to.

    Nice pictures otherwise, those types of water formations are always quite nice to see.

    All colours are as taken, but with a vibrancy boost (like slide film does). So, natural, but a little oversaturated.

    Nice... I especially like the last one. May I inquire what kind of shutter speed you were using to get that trailing effect? (I'm also assuming you used a tripod?)

    Nice photos! Good depth of field, sharpness, composition, and color!

    #2 and #3 appear to be shot using a polarizing filter, and good use of it.

    Looks close enough to natural for what looks like tannin-stained sandstone. Color and saturation seem to match the results that would be obtained by using the most popular pro slide film (Velvia).
