    I am always glad when I get it right. This belonged near the top or at the top. Glad to see it there.

    wow I can hear the noise and the spray, the framing is great as it give depth and size ........... take it away and it becomes a pile of rocks

    Lo Shot taken with long zoom from the Canadian Niagara Park side looking toward the American Falls. I'll post the original non-cropped shot in out-takes.

Bill I'm thankful that someone summarized nicely my thoughts with this entry. To qualify tourism vs just scenery I felt you needed people but the power is in the overwhelming scale, and this is only just the lower part of a part of the Falls at Niagara. I think we forget how majestic they are when we take in the whole, so I thought a crop would really bring home the scale of the place.

    What an incredible place! I hope you'll tell us where you took this beautiful photo.

    The viewing platforms and steps on the right nicely qualify this for the theme. However, to me the strength is in the remainder of the shot, with the dynamic movement of the water and the sheer magnitude that dwarfs the people. In my top 5.

    Drats! Foiled again! I even tried a non-descript tight crop of the American falls and a little Spanish but Sherlock was still hot on my trail. I'll have to get much more clever for the next Challenge....

    I like it. Right on theme. The composition and colour tell me this is Jade's work but please take that as a compliment if I'm wrong. My favourite advice to bored teenagers is to tell them to be a tourist in their own home, I guess you overheard. (Well, it's not that far to Niagara Falls is it?). High in my tt for sure.

    Never been to Niagara Falls? You must be my guest on your next visit to Canada! The rocky bottom of the American Falls are seen here. The green is, I expect, moss and lichens with perhaps no doubt some algae given the always moist environment and you may expect to find the same green under a layer of snow all winter long.

    is The green on the rocks natural? Looks a little odd, but then I have never been here so what would I know. Compositionally it works with the colourfully attired tourists having just the right impact on the right.
