I love the way the flow of the water draws my aye to the rock, which is almost incongruously dark and 'hard' against the delicacy and 'fluidity' of the sand. I would be tempted to even out the top of the sky a bit (or even crop the top bit) as it draws me to the right a bit much.


Beautiful image.
Rob

Lovely shot Neil, the black rock really holds the whole picture together.

Nice one! I agree with Rob though about the dark patch of sky - either dodge it or crop it as it's a bit distracting. Or burn in the top left a bit more to balance it out. I like the water though, especially the softness at the bottom.

Thanks everyone.


I had better say about the sky - that's how it was with a nice sky and a small dark rain cloud either arriving or departing (I can't remember which!). I chopped most of it off in the crop but the selenium toner darkened the piece I left in. I thought about doing a burn on the other side to balance it up but thought it would be rather unnatural so decided to leave it as is.


Neil.

I think the dark cloud helps to give depth to the sky and looks more natural. I like it as is.

Absolute cracker - I can't think of a way to improve it!
