I think the 1/8 is just a little too fast and has caused the water to be just off focus, rather than soft. The black rocks make this photo for me.

I appreciated your comments on my recent rapid water posting. I like this one - the flowing water looks so natural. I agree with Barrie - the solid dark static rocks make an outstanding contrast to the soft flowing pale water.

yes very good

Impressive, Merlynn. My eyes keep going to the center of the picture where all the water seems to be. Love the black rocks.

Yup- the water appears to converge at the centre - leading in the eye. I’m going to be different and state that I personally prefer this image to your other water upload - the contrast between dark rocks, green vegetation and brown water work well. Ensure you keep both photographs in your Gallery's.

got to be different, the water is the wrong speed here and struggling to find the point of focus, sorry

Thanks for all your comments, as stated I deliberately dropped the aperture to F/11 to capture the flow and direction of the water, after flowing over the rock on the right the water hits a submerged rock on the left at speed, throwing the water back upstream upon itself causing the maelstrom in the centre, spray was being thrown up in all directions, this can plainly be seen in the LARGER image, a slower speed would have simply recorded a mass of cottonwool with no flow or texture,
