Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes well to the challenge

Perhaps not ruckus in the strictest sense of the word but this certainly captures a moment of conflict as detailed in the description. A great capture Ronnie, the timing is good and the poor crawfish’s demise is perfectly illustrated. The water drops add a dynamic to the moment. I do feel there seems to be a bit of over saturation it detracts somewhat, the colours throughout would benefit from some subtle desat.

Great image of a great moment, I would prefer the noise to be filtered out a bit more.It doesn't say "ruckus" to me though as a viewer.

I love how you captured the action here, especially with the water droplets. It does look a tad over saturated or something to me. Very cool!
