The camera's perspective is disorienting and there isn't anything particularly interesting happening here to pull it together as a composition.

I agree with other comments... I feel uncomfortable with the composition.

Your question is whether this is "Conceptually Worthwhile".

For a start, it is different from all the other waterfalls we see, the perspective causes a feeling of unease (vertigo? - to me anyhow)

Patricia's picture yesterday was extremely disorientating, so there's nothing wrong with that surely?

To answer your question, the mere fact that it is different from all the others makes the concept worthwhile.

As for the points raised by the other posters, you can always work on those.

Something I will try next time I have the chance - if I can just get over my fear of heights!

Thanks, all. Part of the idea was to cause a little unease, since it's not the usual angle from which we see waterfalls. I was standing on a stone bridge over the fall, looking down as two six-year-olds tried unsuccessfully to play Pooh sticks, and wondered what reaction such a shot would get. Now I know.

William, I'd not made the link with Patricia's photo. I imagine the concepts behind the two are probably not dissimilar.

I think Pop's comment is probably on target: the image lacks a strong focal point. Maybe I'll find a snap of a sombrero from somewhere and clone it in...

If, as do I, you like Eddie Cochran, then the image speaks the proverbial volumes. I saw him and Gene Vincent in their last show in Glasgow just before they had the accident en route southwards to London where Eddie lost his life.

Instead of a hat I'd insert a small hand reaching up out of the water near the bottom.

Nicely unsettling.

No use without a sword, Eric, and I think you'd also need a lake.

Best with Eddie.
