Born and raised in Niagara Falls NY.... I thought I would give this one a shot!
That's fantastic. The white over the deep blue-green colour of the falls really does give an impression of the amount of water cascading as I remember it, and the rising mist is great.
In fact, that underlying blue-green - almost fluorescent - colour is what I remember most when I first saw the falls.
Impressive painting! The water color is fantastic and brush strokes to create the foam with a lot of paint look great. Careful control to create mist through a thin layer works great in here!

Well done! This captures the color and power of the falls! I grew up in Upstate New York and have been lucky enough to see the falls several times and this painting really captures the amazing volume of water as I remember it.
