Nothing to say about this, just nicely composed and I like it Smile

This looks a bit different Paul from the usual wateralls we see on the site. There are lots of unusual colours and textures here. It reminds me of some wet and dark place where goblins might live. I can almost smell that earthy smell.

I have uploaded a mod for you where I increased the contrast by about 17%. My aim was to bring out the water more which is quite subdued in the shot. I also had a go with the dodge tool set to the highlights again to bring out the water.

I can understand why you wanted to home in on all those lovely roots and rocks but maybe adding just a bit more of the water at the bottom would have added an extra element to the scene.

Best wishes

You've done well here in lots of ways. It's good and sharp, and well exposed, with shadow detail and no blow-out in the water. I like the speed of the water although that's a oersonal thing - some would like a longe exposure to make it all milky but I think it's fine the way it is.

So having said all the good things about it, my only real niggle is that I wonder if there's really enough in the subject itself to sustain the interest of the viewer? - but I suppose that's just me being really picky. Nice work

Very nice shot. I love the dynamic range of the imate and how you've manged to fit it all in. Great detail. It is a shame there wasn't just a tad more water flowing to fill it in but there's little you can do about that. Great shot. I'd hang it on my wall...

You've done a good job here of making the scene look bigger than it actually is! The pool of water at the bottom helps this especially.

As you've asked for crit', I will say, I'd like to see a bit of foreground in the frame, the scene looks a little flat without it. Perhaps if there was a little more water at the bottom of the frame or even a few leaves drawing the eye towards the rocks.
