    I like them both. But the second better. What were your settings?

    A bit more subtlety in your PP on the eyes wouldn't go amiss.

    Very nice even lighting on the second image. The B&W doesn't do as much for me as the color image but the photo itself is well composed. Do you PP the B&W or straight from the camera?

    Personally, I would have found these far more interesting if she were in the water with the water flowing over her like the rocks. As these stand, the girl and the flowing water compete.

    That actually was the plan before we got there. The water was just flowing too hard and it was quite dangerous. But once the river drops we will go back.
