I have some mixed feelings about this one… I need more time to think about it. At the moment, I see two photos in one. The river, with its T shape seems to split the photo horizontally. The upper part is pure delight…

Let's see what the others will say, I might be well be wrong about the split-image thing.

I'm a bit torn too. I can see (whether intended or not) the sort of balance that the waterfall & the channel leading to the river, provides to the photo, but the clear division between the upper & lower halves of the image bother me.

The sky's the thing. The boardwalk distracts.

No idea why, but I'm less bothered by this last version. It might be the placement of the river in the frame?

That's not a river. It's just flood waters pooling up from the river.

Have to agree with the flow here. Seems like there are two images. Otherwise, it's just too many conflicting elements to hold the eye to one theme.

I don't remember where I read this, it might have been in an old book on composition by a photographer named Axel Bruck. Although everyone likes to talk about the rule of thirds, most of the great artists of the past avoided exact thirds like the plague.

To my eye, that looks like the difference between the two versions. A more organic ratio seems to soften the effect of the hard separation of sections of the frame.

Yes, you're probably right! Sometimes, I don't spend too much time asking myself why.
