Hello Andrzej,

nice capture of this pretty waterfall - effective shutter speed to capture the magical allure of waterfalls. Wonderful composition and lower point of view.. Including something in the picture to give perspective and scale of the falls might make more impact, but that might have not been possible in this case.

I can see why this is your favourite, a fantasic place to visit. Good POV and detail.

You have some OE in some parts of the photo and this is hard to avoid when photographing waterfalls.

Nice addition to the theme
