Frosty Gullfoss Waterfall

Dear TE Friends. I have heard your words that some of my pic need a little bit noise reduction. Yesterday josepmarin send me a workshop and ... I take his hint and tests the last night all possibilities. I know that is not perfect - especially the right upper corner need some work. I am now a little bit tired - here is the result. If you would like have a look to the workshop where you see the orginal version after the scan.

A frosty waterfall partly frozen. It was not so easy to take the picture because near the edge to the canyon it was very slippery. If you would like to see the canyon have a look to Paul's picture Gullfoss Canyon

Text from Wikipedia:
Gullfoss is a waterfall located on the White River (Hvt) in south central Iceland. Its name means the Golden Falls. The flow of the river from the regular rains and the glacial runoff, particularly in summer, makes Gullfoss the largest volume falls in Europe. The Gullfoss is one of the most spectacular sights on earth. It is one of the natural wonders of the world. The wide White River (Hvt) rushes southward. About a kilometer above the falls it turns sharply to the left and flows down a wide curved three step ""staircase"" and then abruptly plunges in two stages (11 m and 21 m) into a crevice 32 m (105 ft) deep. The crevice, about 20 m (60 ft) wide, and 2.5 km in length, is at right angles to the flow of the river. The average of water running down this waterfall is by 100 180 m/s in the summertime and 50 110 m/s in the wintertime. The highest flood measured was 2000 m/s.
