Thanks guys! Glad you all like it. And Jeremy, I took no offense to your comment at all -- critiques are welcomed and helpful. After all, you even said you liked it a lot! No need for the backlash you received, haha.
Anyways, one of the reasons I like waterfalls is for the same reason many people like black and whites.... the same scene can take on an entirely different personality just by simply changing the exposure time (and with black and whites, by changing the color map). I chose a very high level of blur because I wanted to emphasize how perfectly still the leaf on the rock was, even though water was flowing over it. A shorter speed would have possibly emphasized the power of the water which the leaf was resisting, a nice subject topic itself, but wouldn't have given the feel of permanence I sought.
Thanks again everyone!
