Anthony, the higher ground (unsplashed) stands out nicely here. The rugged rocks throughout are quite striking.

I like this quite a bit so I did a little crop, some brush work and some cloning. A great candidate for b&w. The thing I liked is the contrast you’ve created between the rock and the water - movement and stability, so I emphasized that a little more. Hope you like it as much as I do.

Thanks for your comments Mark.

Kristen, thanks for your feedback and reworking of the image. It is interesting the impact of relatively small edits can have on an image. Much to think about.
