Dwayne,

Love the waterfall.  Could you humor me and try compare a version that adds post vignetting and turn up the shadows darker on the rocks?
I believe this will make the waterfall really pop out of the image and draw the eye to really focus on the flowing strands of water.

I agree that it could use a slight vignette, and it also has a cyan cast and could be warmed up a bit

I love the cascading water and you just dragged the shutter just the right amount to give it that really nice LE effect! The vignette you added made this photo even more perfect. Another awesome image from you Dwayne.

As you wish.

With no "politicking", just showed the two photos to the S.O. who is the harshest critique of mine and she agrees that the 2nd one is better.
Good job!

The second really works better. The slight vignette makes the shot more solid and unified with more presence I think.

I agree that the second is a much more appealing version. I think the vignette is rather overdone, though.

Yes, the second is a much better iteration.
I think the vignette is the right idea too and I am not too sure much more subtle it could be made.

I like the first one.  It's more natural; something you'd see in the woods.  The vignetting is overdone in the seceond.  Nice shot.
