Thanks, Mike! Your approval means a lot.

The composite of Multnomah Falls mimics what could be done from a great distance, but doing that would include a lot of people at the viewing point. I took 8 shots from the viewing point (with everyone else behind me) and stitched them together. PP in LR removed most of the perspective distortion (from looking up).

Great images.
Is the falls 2 rows of 4? If not, what lens did you use?

Interesting trip, and quite a set of photos! Looks like you really enjoyed your 'ride'.
Liked your Mt. St. Helen's shots. When we visited, it was cloudy around the top, and could not see much inside.

yssirk123, thanks so much! The long panorama was stitched from 6 photos, made while the ship was moving on the river. I wasn't sure it would work, but it did. The overall result was too big to upload to UHH so I reduced it to 60% in MS Paint for that purpose.

BboH, thank you very much. Not exactly--it's a center shot with 3 above and 4 below and lots of overlap. My Nikon D7100 always wears the Nikon 18-200 VR2 lens, and those shots were at the 18mm setting; at least one shot was f/7.1, 1/200sec; ISO 5000. The center shot was f/8, 1/250, ISO 5000.

Doug, thanks for the nice comments. Yes, we had nice weather for that entire tour. I avoided some of the excursions because at my age (83) I don't walk so well.

Beautiful waterfalls! Looks like you shot on an overcast day. Have you tried this on a sunny day or boosting the colors on this one? I like stronger colors which tends to accentuate the differences in the greens.
This is the best overall shot that I’ve seen of this falls. Well done!

Thank you very much! I was pleased with the way it came out. I've only been to Multnomah Falls the one time, so a redo is not likely. I also have not experimented with intensifying the colors, but Lightroom would be able to do that. My goal was to get a result that matched my memory of the view.

I have found that the LR "Dehaze" function often provides a useful separation of colors without overworking the "Clarity" function. It's not just good for improving views of distant mountains enveloped in haze or fog. (I've even used it indoors at musical performances with fog machines to get better details of the performers.)
