#1 is very engaging. Nice use of the long lens.

The first one is interesting with the V shaped draw and the waterfall. In the second shot, the waterfall is lost in the landscape.

To me, #1 is the best here.

+1 for the same reasons.

#1.  Do you have any shots that are closer to the falls?  It's great to see quality photos of areas of the world that are not easily accessible.

Thank you, all.

Yes, I do.

What I really wanted was a drone run over the canyon but extremely strong gusts thwarted those plans.

I also like #1.  I like the angles that lead your eye to the falls.  One day I will return to Iceland!

A drone shot would be awesome!  But I know about the "gusts" there.  I had a camera case ripped out of my hand by the wind when I was stationed there at Keflavik.  I miss Iceland very much.

Beautiful! I'm also a fan of #1 although #2 does give some nice context.

Thank you again, gentlemen.

Yes, context was the intent in #2. The first was meant to be the 'serious' image.

The first one I really like a lot, but the plain sky in the second one doesn't seem to add anything to the shot, in fact for me it takes away from it - although when I usually comment like this about unnecessary skies in abstract type images, I usually get told that I couldn't be more wrong and the sky is a necessary counterpoint to the rest of the image or something, but hey that's how I see the world through my viewfinder when I am composing images like this I suppose and we all need to be different don't we  :)

Thanks, Dave, for the critique. As I mentioned about, the second was more a ‘provide the context’ image.

The top is subtle and well comp'd.
