The many steps of the waterfalls of the Iguacu are distributed in a gorge and sorrounded by rainforest. The 2km long 'waterfall trail' offers great views of them. This picture highlights one of the smaller falls in the gorge, combining different elements of this unique landscape.
Taken on a hike along the cataratas trail.
Goal: My intend was to frame the small waterfall with the leaves of the dense rainforest at the sides of the gorge.
I used a small exposure time and a high aperture to get a big depth of field. To achieve a depth effect parts of the waterfalls in the background were left visible, being vague behind the wall of drizzle and a saturation gradient was build up.

from this POV the composition is good -just a pity that the branches in the upper right hide a waterfall's part, but certainly it's not your fault- as well as the colours -so many different shades of green- are well made.Moreover the image is sharp and the falling water is well in contrast with the rest.Good also the DOF.In a word, to make a long story short, i think you've achieved your goal.
