This one works very well for me. I notice that it doesn't have any large areas with no detail.
Lovely image, Josh.

Yes, a beautiful photo.  My personal preference, however, would be for a faster shutter speed, if possible.  I imagine that in person there must have been a rather loud roar from the water and an overwhelming sense of the sheer power of the water.  A slow shutter speed turns the water silky and, in my opinion, doesn’t convey the power and majesty of the falls.  Rather, to me this photo, with the silky smooth water, conveys a sense of serenity (which may have been intentional).   I expect I’m in the minority, however, because most of the photos I see of powerful waterfalls show the effects of a rather slow shutter speed.

Stunning image Josh. I love the contrast/ contradiction between the allmighty, thunderous river and the small stream in the bottom right. Well seen Sir..

A river running straight (probably along a fault line or rift) fed by continuous line of waterfall (on both sides?).  I must say that I have never seen anything quite like this, ever, and I cannot imagine why.  Something akin to an artist's impression of some spot on a far off world.

Josh, you have posted many very nice landscape shots in the past.  This is by far my favourite (the uniqueness of the scene, the light, the movement of the water and that little bit of flow in the foreground (lower right) just doit fo me.

Very well done.

Been watching this, and the others for a few days. This is my favorite so far.  All the more frustrating since I was there with Josh and had the same opportunity.

The whole series is stunning.  I could only wish that a simple trip to Iceland would get me to a place where I was able to take such pictures.
