    Hi Miguel,

    That's an impressive waterfall. I like how the curved viewing platform brings the viewer of the photo into the scene. I would have liked to exclude the plant in the lower right cornder, and considered cropping the lower horizontal part of the picture to remove it, but it removes too much of the viewing platform, so I think it best left as it is. Except you could crop a little off the bottom to remove the plant in the middle.

    It might be worth raising the shadows to better see the platform and people, but I'd have to try to before deciding it was an improvement.

    Regards

    Tony

    Hi Miguel. I like the composition but agree that the plant could go. A flash firing on the people would have been good to add some detail. It has a good effect coming out of the side of the frame and into the centre.

    Hi wayne I'm going to clone this area.
    About to use the flash, maybe this doesn't work very well, because this area had plenty water on suspension.
    Thanks for your comments.
    Best regards
    Miguel
