The two figures are almost - not quite - in silhouette against the bright areas of the rushing water. The shrubs framing the f/g and the vignetting add to the atmosphere.

A brilliant and classic Lou Reed track, whcih I think he would be rather chuffed at this accompanying image. I can almost feel and hear the rush of water in the wear.

It does have that 'Wild' feel to it and the silhoutettes are great
as f/g interest. An image you can feel.
KateGrinGrinGrin
P.S. I've taken note of your 'rant' re Camera Clubs -
until I joined EPZ that was where I learned everything I know to date
(apart from reading Digital Magazines etc) and yes you're right about pleasing myself
which I can do on EPZ. I enjoy club competitions which do have 'rules' and guidelines
but they don't allow for much 'Arty' stuff.

very active rushing water superbly captured, without the people it would not work as well (sounds a bit Irish) think you will understand
