Wow, great capture of the water action, Augusto. Did you get wet?

Outstanding capture and POV Augusto! I like the drama here along with the details in the water. My only suggestion would be to lighten the overall scene just a touch as it looks a little dark; at least to me. I hope you do not mind, but here is a rework with what I was thinking. I hope you did not get wet. :grinning:

Augusto, this is breath taking. I love the view and you nailed the shutter speed perfectly. The water is smooth yet detailed. I’m curious what shutter speed you used. I do like Ed’s brightening.

Thanks for your comments. I took the photo with a 200 mm telephoto lens, it is very dangerous to get close to the rocks, they are like knives. So only a little aerosol came to me. The speed I used was 1/13, my experience is that in these types of conditions speeds between 1/10 to 1/15 achieve the effect of spikes in the water. I really liked the ED’s effect of lighting the photo, I’m going to play a little with that by myself,
