That is an impressive waterfall, Tom. I like that you included both the waterfall and the tourists. My only critique is that there is too much empty space above the waterfall that takes away from the main subjects. I would consider a crop (or since you're shooting film, physically get closer). Something like this, perhaps:

Otherwise, I really like this captured moment.

cbarnard7 I like the crop thank you. My concept was the trees framing the scene of the human enjoyment.
I did shoot this in 4x5 also. I will develop those this week end. Shot this with a 28mm lens.

Excellent shot Tom. I find my self a little torn, I do like Chris’s crop but I also like the way the trees framed the whole scene in the original.

I find this a busy composition. Don’t get me wrong, there are some very nice individual composting elements. Personally I would have gone for the falls only and left the humans out!
