solid rock

I would like to share this photo of a small rock in a flowing stream of water.
Comments are welcome.

Thanks

Mo

I hope you don't mind my messing with your image, but while I liked the tension inherent in the image to me it looked 'backward'.  To that end, I did a quick flip.

I do not mind at all. The purpose of putting the photo on-line is for constructive criticisms and comments so as to learn and improve.

Mike...can we assume that you swapped that image because of the western propensity of the eyes to travel from left to right over an image as the water seems to be flowing?
I routinely do the same with my BIF images, makes a big difference.

Curious. The first one looks "righter" to my eyes, and the water flow seems to be downhill running from left to right.
Maybe I've been trying too hard to read Hebrew.

Aloha,

I've often wondered if being left handed or right handed makes us have a propensity for arrangements offsets in compositions to the left or right, certainly i like a left breaking wave better than a right breaking wave when i surf....

I guess you are right. I am left handed and I tend to favor placing important objects in my photos on the left. It just seems more natural to me.

Yes.  Then again, I don't read Hebrew.  ;)

I agree. Although I've not been reading Hebrew recently.
