Nice shot Sam!

That forground rock almost looks like it was added in afterwards. makes for a nice contrast against the swiftly moving water.
Although this image is good, I have to wonder what the shot would have looked like with a similar exposure facing up river? Using the water to lead the eye into the frame normally works quite well. Do you happen to have another shot of the area you could post as a workshop?

All the best,

i found the closest thing to what you mentioned in your critique and uploaded it... it isn't very similar at all though. i certainly understand what you're saying about using the water to lead into the frame, but i'm not real sure how possible/practical such a shot was here. Thanks for the very thoughtful critique--

Hi Sam!

I must admit, I do like the colors in the workshop!
Very true, certain techniques don't always work for all circumstances.

Normally a wide angle lens and a low POV (provided your able to get a tripod low enough) will allow you some great forground subject, while also capturing the surrounding area. Much like this shot from Adam Burton.

I used to live in South America when I was young- and look forward to the day I can return with my camera!

All the best Sam!
