For long exposure, to get milky water. It was 4pm & too bright. Lowest ISO possible and polarizer still didn't give me what I wanted. Otherwise it would be F8. It looks really good at 100% so I use this when I have to.

I did spend some time in PS though. Unprocessed was too bright upper left, and bit dark lower right. So I did diagonal grad filter from upper left corner till about center of image, then used HDR toning with mask in lower part to bring out shadows. Benefit of lowest possible ISO is very little noise after HDR toning in shadows. Also warming filter for ground/rock and emerald filter for foliage. Finish with brightness enhancement ~15% for water and bit of contrast.

I am surprised these two have not been posted because how easy they are to access but here are a few shots from Golden Ears Park. The first two are the lower falls at the end of the lower falls trail and then the third is the upper falls using a faint trail past the lower falls.

And one more of the falls at the Bortherhood trail head leading to upper Statlu lake.

I've been to the upper falls quite a number of times but can't get a clear direct shot of it like you have here. I guess a longer focal length lens helps.

There is a little ledge above the falls I am sure you are aware of and I had a friend and myself holding back some foliage that was obstructing the view while the camera was on a tripod using a timer. This shot is at 35mm.
