Ragged Falls in Algonquin park looking down from the top in the fall.

Water flow seems to be quite reduced in the fall.

 

Using a Lee big stopper, and polarizer .

I like the color in the foliage. Well done.

They do look similar.  Nice perspective and wonderful colour.  The only thing I'd suggest and this is really a matter of personal taste, but I find the exposure in this one to be too long (I'm guessing in the 20 sec range?)  For this kind of shot you might try a three stop and shoot at between ¼ and ½ sec.  The problem for me, when the exposure gets too long is that you also lose a sense of the water's movement.

Nice scene, detail and lovely colours. I suspect that such long exposures with trees in the image inevitably equates to the leaves being less sharp than might seem ideal unless there is zero wind..?

yes it does have that issue anything that moves gets blurred.

 

The image specs are iso 100, f/11, 90 seconds, full frame body.

That Lee 10 stop big-stopper and a polarizer cut the light by maybe 13 stops when used together!

 

Need a bigger flash-sun!

Actually, Geedee, that doesn't have to be the case.  In an image such as this one, it would be simple to shoot the scene without a filter with a reasonably fast shutter speed.  That would give you an image with all the foliage in sharp focus.  Then with the same tripod set-up, put on your filter, adjust the settings and shoot the scene again.  That will give you the water with long exposure.  Then in post, blend the two, which in this case would be simple to do - and voila, the foliage nice and sharp and the water with long exposure.

I really love that ethereal LE water! I would also suggest blending a 'normal' exposure of the trees with the long exposure of the water. Blurry leaves don't work for me.
