At the falls...
1

I am experimenting with a smaller camera (advantage:  size, weight, cost), but I keep coming back to the D800 for landscapes (advantage resolution, dynamic range, noise, ease of use, plethora of lenses and accessories).

Helmock Cliffs, Hoosier National Forest, Indiana

Nikon D800 + 14-24 f2.8 zoom at 20 mm, f16, ISO 100, 1/6 sec, tripod:

¼ sec, ISO 100, f16, 14-24 zoom at 24 mm:

Brrrr! I love the colors. Are you seeking C&C? I have some thoughts.

Re: At the falls...

nice images , though I feel they lack a little "pop" , and maybe taken from a much lower level , "looking up".

by the way ,what was the point of the last reply , that you told the truth about the settings or that the poster has a tool to find out the exif info , strange , but anyway , dont trust exif , it can be altered after the fact and be extremely misleading .

Personally, I like the processing. It looks natural, rather than the over-saturation commonly used to make ordinary photos look more interesting. This is processing that one could live with, but might be difficult to sell through a gallery in a tourist town.

I find the dark tree trunk a little distracting for some reason. I think it might be less so if it were lightened a little. Something you might try.

A tight crop on the ice formations would make an interesting additional shot. There are several different forms and textures there that could make a very nice composition.

I think this could have been a wider shot. The mini falls at the top left seem too close to the edge. They create a little bit of visual tension, distracting from the center of interest. I would also like to see more into the distance at the top of the frame. A change of angle might be warranted for that.
