Looks ok DJ. I'm not one to offer an opinion or even make a suggestion. I certainly would never do that .... far be it from me to even plant a seed of an opinion.... Not me Sir!

In the history of western culture, there is a rumor that only 5 images were meant to be in b&w. DJ, I think we just found the sixth. By converting this image to b&w, you could be setting the course for all photographers to follow us in history to come.
It's a huge responsibility DJ but I think your and you alone can handle the task.

This post comes on a Sat nite after a few shots to relax the weary head of the shooter...

What he said. I suspect that a B&W of this great shot will make it spectacular.

Oh - and make a print of this one. Please.

On the other hand, I've had a few shots too, so take that into account...

SS,

My good man, I think you are right about the B+W. I think it needs more tweeking, but I do like it.

Because of the precarious spot I was in, its obvious that the image was not lined up exactly. I had to do some rotation in the image to get it to look like the one I posted.

Yes, the B&W is very nice.

May I make a tiny suggestion? Just for your consideration. Try cropping a bit off the bottom. There is a 'natural' horizontal line there. Cropped to cut off most ( but not all) of the large rock I sense the direction in which the eye is drawn is even more powerful.

Nicely made photograph just as it is.

I reckon crop the bottom to make it a square format, increase the contrast, and you're there. Nice work.
I was playing with it earlier, and I just couldn't bring myself to make it square. The flow of the water really needs something I think longer than square, at least 4:3.

I realize the rock on the left is a tad distracting, but in some ways I think it grounds the picture a little.

I would continue to work on the first image as well - the rocks seem to have more substance in color - the moss adds some life (literally) to the picture.
