At first glance, the first thing that caught my eye was the water. The mist on top gives it a dream like feel, almost to the point where it looks painted. The faded rocks bring out the colors of the water more. The rocks in front seem to me as like another landscape, one where the rocks are roads and path ways, and the pools are lakes of green and silver. The big mountain in the back is like a massive shadow, just what it needs for the dream feel. It gives it a back story, something that drags your eyes away from the center rock. It's almost like a relief from the spinning swirly light water, its solid and dark. The perfect contrast. The only issue id the sky, I don't know what, but it seems off. That sky doesn't really fit with the whole picture. Everything is do sharp and clean, then there just this big blur in the sky. It's just... not fitting.
What do you think?

I liked this piece a lot.

My critique would be to bring out some of the colors and detail on the photograph.

For example, I have a filter/effect called Equalize Histogram that makes the picture brighter, bringing out certain details but blowing out other areas.  But by combining it with the original, you end up with..., well... a picture is worth a thousand words.

Thank you very much. :)

I don´t really like such filter effect, nor that you have edited my original image without asking beforehand.

This is actually pretty much as seen, except for the 1.6 second exposure to smooth the water just a little and create a sense of motion.

It looks like a picture from the 1960s only in Technicolor and digitalized.
