Honestly don't like the cant.

Very cool subject for a photo. The shot seems uncomfortably crooked though, and overexposed water at the top seems to be distracting.

Image off level (may have been intended but does seem to detract from shot) and overall does not seem to have fully captured the colors of the scene.

This looks like a beautiful place! You have captured an image that makes me want to visit this place. My suggestions: It looks like you could use a little color saturation; I haven't decided yet if I like the tilted composition. If you are able to use filters, try a neutral density to slow your shutter down a little bit and smooth out the water, or go back at early morning/late evening.

Two things that really distract me when looking at this shot is the tilt (enough to be distracting, not enough to seem on purpose, or, if it was on purpose it eludes me) and the blown out bit of sky at the top.

The angle actually makes me dizzy, as silly as that sounds. Neat capture, but seeing the water flow un-naturally just messes up my brain

Seems to make me dizzy. May be tilted.

Is this photo 100% straight. It looks really off balance as everthing is at a 60 degree angle. I would prob try totating this one 30 degrees or so. It would help really make this photos somethign special :)

Looks like a very pretty spot. If the photo was straight, IT would be much nicer, too.

This is a very nice picture, I really like it, but I think competition is tough - good luck!

Nice scene but the angle doesn't work for me.

Who lives in Roodepoort? Is this anywhere near little falls? I'm not sure that the tilt adds to this picture. Also seems to be a little over-exposed, and this causes a problem at the top of the picture where the sky meets the water ... there is no real difference between the two.

shots like this should be in a vertical orientation. imo

the horizon is badly tilted here, and it ruins the impact of this photo for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2005 02:37:54 AM
did you intend to make this tilted? It feels too imbalanced for this subject IMO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This photo makes me homesick, for Gauteng. Have you seen the black eagles?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2005 01:01:50 AM
Why did you tilt this? Would have been far better without the gimmick, IMO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Odd choice for the rotation. I don't think it works for me - I would have preferred it straightened up.
