I think it's a great picture, but needs a slightly tighter crop.

Not as scary as the book. Liked the depth and the highlight of the dstant part of teh stream. The shadow on the left foreground I found a bit disconcerting

Really nice - too bad we couldn't have advanced editing. This is probably the best considering the limitations. 8

The rotation is distracting for me, even if it was intentional.
