    I'm not sure what this scene looked like before it was put through the HDR process, but I'd be surprised if this image is an improvement on the images which came straight out of the camera.

    To my eye, this image just looks too plastic and unreal, with overly-vivid colours, and it seems strangely depthless. I think a bit more of a subtle approach to processing could make this a more appealing image, but as it stands at the moment it bears too little relation to real life for my taste.

    i imagine this is a wonderful place to start with. i would like to see the original, too.

    the post-processing creates a dreamy, out-of-this world atmosphere. i have no qualms with the processing. it is obvious and creates new.

    oooo this is great....
    nice place....
    i wish i could be there........

    your title remind me one of my fav. megadeth song A Secret Place lols............

    i loved the shutter here.......
    nicely exposed....1.3sec made it happen..........

    very interesting image......

    loved the green all around........

    i would loved to see a wider one here..........
    your pic made its viewer thirsty to watch more around this frame......
    you've no right to make them thirsty :D

    well balanced color and tone....
    liked the processing you made to correct the washed out part of the stream (ref. note 1).....

    note 2., is this the secret place ? i'm commenting this photo at the midnight local time.....cant be sure whether i'm seeing right or wrong.......this noted part seems a bit blurry (usually i see at my monitor from 1.5ft distance) and whenever i become curious and get closer to my monitor to watch what happened actually there, i found the detail.....how possible....oh man its a maze !!!!!! i felt dizzy.......so i’m here to stop critic…

    This image is so pleasing to me! I love that there is a crazy log in the middle of the serene scene of water falling. I love the shinyness of the log. It looks polished, like it had a really long journey down a winding river before whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa kaboom! going over the falls. I don't know how to make images like this yet but I know it's not easy so kudos to you for not only making an interesting waterfall shot, but making a technically excellent one! The colors really pop, especially the green. And the squiggly bit of the log adds a lot of interest too. Really wonderful waterfall shot! Congrats!
