This photo is technically a failure, but there's something about the grainy image and yellow cast that makes me like it. The automatic flash on the BlackBerry camera barely caused an impact on the photo. The color balance on auto gave a yellow cast because of the spotlights from tungsten bulbs that light the falls at night. A point and shoot digital camera would handle this situation better because of flash is much more powerful, but you sometimes don't want the flash to overpower the background. In this case, the blurring waterfall is a result of a slow shutter speed of the camera pnone, and the flash kicking in slightly.
