Waterfall - Gradient Map and Dodge/Burn

This was a photo I took a couple of years ago when I just got my first DSLR. I used two tutorials from the January/February PET: Get Creative with Color and Find Your Focus (Also a pretty aggressive crop and some levels adjustment).

The crop you choose works really nice. It draws your eyes right to the waterfalls.
Nice Job.

I particularly like the added pop to the oranges and green in the rock face.
