So here is my first photo for the forum, it has been raining pretty hard out here for the past few days (what else is new :rolleyes:) So all the rivers are raging. This is hand held for 1/2 a second (don't have a tripod yet) :laughing:
C&C welcome

Oh Well done! :clap:

I like the colour and the sense of movement here. The detail on the rocks is great too. I would recommend cropping out that rock on the left OR showing more of it. right now as it is, it's just a distraction. But that's a picky point.

Thanks for the comments :), I agree about the rock on the left I would like to show more of it but there is a tree branch there that is really distracting.

Hi Scotty,

Normally we don't critique at all or just give a point or two when shots are posted in the "show" forums. For fuller critiques, which facilitates learning but does 'put yourself out there a bit', the critique forum is better.

I just wanted to add
This is hand held for 1/2 a second

Since you do not have a tripod I would doubt this was shot with a stabalizing lens...and so...you have really steady hands dude!

Ok, thanks for the rules Marko. It was shot with a Nikon kit lens (18-55) that does have VR but even so it was hard to get a shot without some shake in it.

Well done - I like the soft water around the sharp rock.
