Takakkaw Falls by La-Vita-a-Bella Takakkaw Falls by La-Vita-a-Bella
Takakkaw Falls (say that 5 times fast!) is located in Yoho National Park in B.C., Canada. It is the second highest waterfall in western Canada at 1,260 ft. The name translates into "it is magnificent."

Hard to get a sense of scale here, but I can only imagine how massive these falls are. They look like a great place to sit down and admire. I think cropping the sky completely would help here as my focus wants to be on the falls and I find myself with the image scrolled down just above where the falls emerge. Just my opinion. Lovely image!

If I cropped the whole sky, the waterfall would be on the top edge of the shot, which IMO would look really bad. The falls aren't as photographic as I'd like, but since it's such a noteworthy waterfall in Canada, I felt it would be wrong of me not to post it. :)

There should be some room just above the falls if you crop it. I guess its just personal preference. Looks like one would need a super wide angle lens, or shoot a vertical pano to get something with enough sky.

I have other shots with more sky, but I was using a 17mm on a full frame sensor for this shot, so things don't get a whole lot wider. A pano would definitely be needed for more sky.

Thanks! Yes, circular polarizer. I've noticed that the sky appears to be much darker at higher elevations. I actually had to lighten the sky in post processing.
