This study of waterfalls began with the question "why I don't like waterfall pictures?"
For the most part I speak of those silky-smooth shots that are sometimes over saturated that to some [me] feel cute like those terrible kitten pictures that appear to garner high favs on the various social media sites.
Likes and dislikes are rarely universal or absolute. Based on the assumption that I dislike all waterfall pictures, here I explore a series of shots and look for characteristics that compensate or offset what I dislike. By identifying compensating measures that minimise or offset those negative elements, I do two things:  I clarify the characteristics I dislike  I build a suite of compensations.
While individually a compensation may not add sufficient weight to the like-side of the scale to bring the balance positive, at least the deficit is reduced. It is hoped that these steps will be cumulative and as such may be applied together and their total weight will result in more palatable outcomes.
I came to conclude that there are compensation I could apply that at minimum would result in a generally more tolerable waterfall shot. As such the goal going forward will be to make images that incorporate one or more of these compensations, as noted below:
