This is a great shot! It completely reminds me of the classic movie "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory". The falls are churning the chocolate river. What intrigues me most is that the clouds are placed right above the falls that it looks like the falls are run by a steam engine. The grass is near perfect green which, I think, compliments the brown water very well.

I would play around with the saturation a bit and maybe some contrast to give the image a nice color boost but otherwise this is a great photo and an instant fav!

Well done!

This is truly a spellbinding photograph. Yes, the river water does resemble chocolate, that aside however, what really stands out about this piece is the childhood innocence and tranquility pulsating within it. Even the lone cloud hovering above the falls, which is dead center mind you, looks like a giant fluffy marshmallow. It looks like you snapped the picture at just the right moment, my friend. The details are sublime and you can see every leaf on the trees clearly. In fact, I almost expect Willy Wonka to be waving me over from the bridge. This is a classic piece in my book and you captured it extravagantly. Great work!

Awesome - I was wondering what the falls there are like. I live about 60ish miles north in Altus, OK. My boyfriend and I went down there last month to check out one of the stores from the company he works for and neither of us were sure where the falls actually were lol
