Really like the photo, Nicholas.

There's nice detail and shadows in the rocks and the water has a lustrous quality. For my taste, the frame seems unnecessarily complicated. The asymmetry of the pinlines around the transverse axis begs attention that the image itself could be enjoying.

I agree with the frame comment but this is such a strong image that it seems a shame to concentrate on that. Excellent textures and movement.

Rob, thank you for your comments, I have added this to the next image, please let me know after I have posted tomorrow, cheers! :-)

There were a couple of criticisms of my frame, (what’s new!) I understand what the complaint is, that the white takes away the attention from the image, and I agree in some ways; the reason I used this frame is the all the images in this series are dark, and just using a black frame loses some of the image where it bleeds into the edges. However I take the point, next image I will post will have a black frame, please can you all put a vote on it, then I will use the one you choose! :-)
