Photographing Waterfalls

Thanks to cooler morning temperatures we had the Falling Waters State Park Waterfall to ourselves for quite a while. Most of the photographs I took initially froze the droplets. Since I had the time, I decided to play around with setting the time and getting the soft water look, or bridal veil, or any number of other names. The caption below each shows the settings I used on the camera, and the result. I handheld the camera since I did not have a tripod or monopod with me, but used the boardwalk to prop myself and avoid shake.
