This is cool, but it's out of focus. The rocks are out of focus. Anyhow, good eye. I definitely see the 'v'.

Congrats on top ten. This was not a pic that I had rated on first glance (shows what I know!) - but grows on me with reflection. Feels slightly off balance (about 3 degrees CW rotate required to even out water flow in top RHS). High contrast important for the "V", but maybe slightly too strong for the pretty picture effect.

Personally, I almost always vote a border slightly down unless it works really well (in which case no conscious improvement or deduction to my vote) - I like to judge the image and the 1 pixel black border is usually enough for me. Think that there are more voters like me - not sure if we outvote the border-lovers or not...!

This is a wonderful find! Most creative 'V' in the challenge and I think it will do well (top 5 at least). Of course that's just my opinion. ;^) I like most of this photo...if I could offer any suggestions I would say that it's just a tad dark and the rocks could be sharper. 8

I have problems with falling water, it never seems to come out right. So when I see a good study like this - it is appreciated. Not the best I've seen, but pretty good.

Good eye! This is a great shot; creative seeing. Don't think it needed the border.

This is a very nice image. I love the way the water looks in this image. I also like the fact that the image has darks colors and then the letter itself is a light color. Nice work.
