Nice waterfall! I like the addition of the boy, but I perhaps having him wave his arms wasn't the best option. I'd like to see him a little more separated from the waterfall, more to the left.

Nice composition and great use of light. Would enjoy seeing this with just the falls.

the other photos where nothing was in focus - I was not fond of because it seemed in error. I actually like the continual motion on this one. Nice job.

This is a beautiful shot of the waterfall, the curving flow of the water is quite hypnotic. I think that having the boy in motion detracts from it quite markedly, though. If he'd been static, it would have been a winner, in my mind.

Very nice waterfall, the way it flows into the bowl and then overflows to the pool.

Nice rich colors, good composition I think the boy adds to this shot.

Doesn't look quite straight to me. Cool waterfall.

Beautiful capture of both the water and the child.

Beautiful location. Imagine it must be pretty dark for a long exposue. Getting children to do what one wants is not always easy, is it ;-) Would have preferred less of the dragonfly wings and more of the dancing...

Here's a water shot that works. ;^) It has a subject! I imagine you had fun getting this image taken. Well, maybe the boy had more fun. He-he. Good idea. Best of luck in the challenge.

there is a bit of controversy about water blur but this wins with the figure in it for me

Pretty, but I find the boy's arms distracting.

Look at those arms! What a wonderful shot and title. The water is silky smooth.

for me i would've liked it better with the boy standing still. great shot none the less! 8!

Nice with two items showing motion. I realize that if you just showed the blur of the water that someone would inevitably vote you down because of it but personally I think the portrait would have been better without the motion of the child's arms. Still nicely composed shot. (7)

This would have been an excellent shot without the boy. He is distracting and adds unnecessary drama and excitement to such a serene shot.
