A Hint for Better Waterfall Capture

One of the hardest things to get right is a waterfall. Almost inevitably, in bright light there will be no detail in the water because it will be overexposed.
Of course with cameras that have manual shutter control people often slow down the speed so the flow of the water will look smoother and more arty.
We have little control with our phone cameras.
Yesterday, I decided to use -2 exposure compensation to capture Whitewater Falls, in the Nantahala National Forest, near Cashiers, North Carolina, and was very pleased with how this image came out. Whitewater Falls - Nantahala Forest.jpg
The image WAS tweaked with Photoshop.

Image is really compressed by this website. Trust me - detail is much better! :) I feel so confident of the Note 4's camera abilities that I can so some sightseeing without carrying a "real" camera, something I wouldn't have done before my Samsung phones (S3 and this one). Of course they have their limitations, but within them, the image quality is quite remarkable.
