I have to say that I disagree slightly with this. For me, the lack of waterfall on the left gives a sense of scale and place to this which would be missing if the picture was all waterfall.

Just my humble opinion :-)

Beautiful capture. It would be a fav of mine too.

Hello from the CC Club,

I saw this and groaned out loud then beat my head on ym desk. How exactly am I meant to critique this? Are you trying to kill me??? This is the most amazing shot and something that is rarely seen on DPC if ever.

Stunning colours
amazing view
tremendous waterfall that looks like it is made out of golden rays
blue is intense

Maybe just maybe a little crop on the left hand side, so that your eye is not searching for more water where this is none.

Apart from that , stunning

Unique capture of a sunset. I seldom like sunset photos simply because they all seem so similar, thanks for pulling my interest in this picture very sharp.
