Chris - if you refer to the leaves in the lower center: No, these are not distracting.
To my eyes these are an additional nice patch of colour
 
Hi Michael, nice variations on the theme. The scale of that station in the first photo is impressive, is that another photographer there?

@Jerome: very elegant photo!

I think this is a nice example of dynamism created by a diagonal line that Fahim mentioned. The rocky lines lead downwards, but the curved lines seem to flow towards the observer in continuous motion.

Reginald,

I also love to photography waterfalls and they are challenge. So many different opportunities to frame the same scene in a myriad of decisive ways.

You have made some unique choices, like cutting off a feeding part of a major flow to the lower left, yet it works admirably.

Thank you, Asher. Framing is often a dilemma for me still. Sometimes the LCD view seems to have a different effect than watching on the PC monitor. In this case however, I was concentrating more on bringing out the splashing droplets without freezing them or smoothing out the water flow.

Yes, you suceeded! I do not ever choose the milky look although it's a very effective strategem. What you have done still allows for the image to conjure up the thunder and splashing and spray in my face!
