    For this photo the Darlot does not transport me to any place I wish to be. Simple Symmar met a pymmar going to the photo fair. Said Symmar to the Pymmar....

    Well you finish it.

    Thanks everyone. Funny, I get to read all the nice comments in the notification e-mails when I'm at work, but my work computer blocks APUG so I have to wait until I get home to say thanks for all the thoughtful comments.

    As Ian said. The composition of the soft one works better for me. I'd suggest to crop the sharp one roughly to the frame of the soft picture and compare then. At least I'd crop out the upper part with the gap between the rocks.

    I prefer the first picture for the contrast between the softness of the falls and the rough rocks. (but the second is nice too, just to be diplomatic)

    I was a stickler for sharp as a tack photos before I ventured into ULF photography. I'm, thankfully, able to see the beauty of selective softness now though. I like both of the images, but if I were to purchase one to hang on the wall, it'd be the soft one; it is more accessible and slightly abstract. It's more universal because it's no longer just about the waterfall, but showing the photographer's hand in making the image.

    I like them both but I much prefer the one shot with the 150 Symmar. I like the textural contrast between the soft water and the hard edginess of the rocks. I also like the wide perspective that places the waterfall as part of the setting rather than dominating it. I seldom prefer SF, BTW. At any rate, both are beauties.

    Woops... year old thread. Sorry. :o

    I prefer the the sharp image. I think it brings out more tone and detail.

    Both are nice, but I'll go with the sharp one.
