Gorgeous falls with a beautiful blue color - is that how they really look or has saturation been boosted a little here? I think the crop is a bit tight to the boat, I feel like they are barely making it into the picture.

Great Shot! I might suggest a crop just below the group of spectators as they don't add anyting to the shot in my opinion. They are actually a bit of a distraction. Score: 7.

I have been here. Never before or since have I seen water so blue.
