Wow - great shot. You worked it well. (Your image reminded me that I really should buy a graduated ND filter.)

Thanks Bill. I'm finding that processing HDR images in Lightroom never work out 100%, so it's nice to get a single image instead (maybe manual blending in Photoshop might help but I haven't done that type of thing).

I checked the sun alignment ahead of time and saw that it would rise behind the falls, so booked a hotel close to the falls so that I could walk over at sunrise. I had to use a graduated neutral density filter to hold back the brightness in the sky and tried various shutter speeds until I got the look and feel that I wanted.
