Hi from the CC CLub,

This is a gorgeous image. I am shocked the grass stayed still long enough for you to shoot!!!

I am surprised at the placement of this, waterscapes do so well and this is different from the normal shot. But then again, right now we seem to be a in flux of waterscapes similar to this.

I do like the fact that your entire water is not the usual creamy, misty smooth water, yours actually has some character.

Your POV and DOF is great, wouldn't change it at all, but I think that maybe as the grass is so so green and everything else is very grey with just a hint of green in the rocks is hurting you. The grey is dominating whilst the green is such a blast of green, it doesn't seem real. Not sure if any of that made sense, sorry. Basically, I think you need to bring a little more colour into it to balance out the green.

Your sharpness is strong and to the point, your details are great, I would just tweak around with the colours a little.

I can see this hanging in a Spa somewhere, I really do like it

Like the use of selective desat to add extra emphasis. Amazing places some plants find to live!
