Hi Anthony,

I see you aren't new to EPZ but is this your first upload?

Please read the guidelines to posting critique images as you have hardly any description and no camera details. It is very difficult to critique an image correctly when we the viewer have no idea of what you were trying to achieve and what camera and settings you used to achieve the shot.

This looks like a very interesting place and I love the shot. the water is nicely blurred to give the movement but not too smooth to create a milky effect. The colours work well and the image has a bit of an HDR feel to it. The main interest for me seems to be in the centre of the image and I feel if I were to suggest any changes it would be to crop off the left and right edges to allow us to concentrate on the main part of the image and stop the viewers eye wandering off to the sides.

I have uploaded a mod where I cropped the edges to show you what I meant, I also increased the contrast slightly as well. A slight sharpen and hopefully you can get an idea of what I was meaning.

Please remember that it is your image and these are just my ideas so please ignore them if you feel that they are not relevant.

Just adding on to Dave above if you get the chance to take this again, i would suggest getting a lower point of view this will unlock the potential of the image from an impact standpoint, for this one i think the mod works best Smile

We have an adequate record, but it lacks life. Everything is rather heavy - needs a bit off added brightness and a touch of contrast to lift it.

This is clearly a beautiful location but the composition lacks a clear focal point so I find myself wandering rather aimlessly around the photo. In this respect, I find Dave's mod to be a big improvement as the zig-zag of the stream through the frame gives me a clear path to follow.

Try to think about what makes the place you're photographing special and unique and how you can convey that to your audience. Just as a fashion photograph needs more than just a beautiful model, a landscape needs more than just a beautiful location.
