I didn't forget my tripod this time.  I'm not sure which I prefer, the black and white version or the color version.
Canon 7D, EF-S 18-135mm STM @ 24mm & f/13, ISO 100, 1/8s, 12 image stack in photoshop.

I go for the color. My eyes immediately go to the waterfall in the upper right center. In the B&W my eyes don't settle anywhere. Irregardless, nice image.

I prefer the color. The B/W gets a little blown out in the middle of the waterfall, IMO.


Really nice shot! Where is this creek?

I like the color one as well. The crop in this image is difficult for me. I would like to see a more traditional 3:2, 4x6, with more of the far bank in the image.

Hey David! 


Indeed a nice image, and like all of the above, I prefer the color one too.  As John W mentioned - the image itself is a bit too narrow for the eye.  Perhaps give it another third or so in vertical resolution?
