That focal rock has so much character... the shape, the lean, the layers, its texture. Awesome. Coupled with your composition and the rushing water with ideal shutter speed makes for a wonderful piece. Great capture and so well executed! :clap:

The rocks look super-sharp and dangerous...I can picture a shipwreck here. I like the water in the foreground rushing over the pebbles and larger rocks.

Your information is very interesting

No, the worlds sharpest lens is the Distagon 21mm, even more then the Distagon 18mm. Both lenses are better than 17-40 or 16-35, but the 21mm is just amazing!!!
The only inconvenience is the fixed focal at 21mm, but for me, for landscape photography it's enough. The only thing good on 17-40 or 16-35 is the zoom, but no sharp on the edges!! Even at f/16 or f/22.

Just take a look at this reviews, your will be amazed!!!!!

Não sei porquê, ao ver a imagem pensei ser de um português.
Excelente imagem, muito bem composta, com excelentes contrastes no primeiro plano a proporcionar grande força, excelente luz e colorido. A inclinação das rochas e o movimento da água criaram um fantástico dinamismo. Parabéns.

With help of the friend "photoshop"!! On corners loses a bit of sharpness, but in middle is really great. The MarkII version is better
Thanks buddy!!

Always for sure accentutation.. but you know taht the base image is important
16-35 is totally amazing at my eye

I'm thinking to get the Canon TS-E 24mm for landscape photography, or the Carl Zeiss Distagon 21mm. Both lenses are amazing in a very high sharp quality, and no distortion, you can get all the frame focus. The 16-35,Mark1 and Mark2 are not so good. I don't understand why canon makes such a good camera body's and doesn't have a great wide angle lens, like the new Nikkor 14-24, my god what a lens!!!! You pay +/- 1300€ for the 16-35 and you still have the corners with a lot of blur, even at f/11, f/16.
Cheers buddy

No worries. I know the feeling. Sometimes you just need a pair of "fresh" eyes. Again, great shot!

Really fantastic composition and exposure. Dynamic range pushed to the exact right amount. I would just take care of the sharpening halos on the high contrast rock edges. As a landscape photographer I look closely for processing flaws. It's not a biggie, I just think the overall "unprocessed" look most of us landscape guys go for, would have been reached had it no been for the halos. But nonetheless, fantastic shot.

Really appreciate your great comments, sometimes we are too deep in the same photo, and don't notice some mistakes, i'll fix the halos, or try to fix them...:D!!
Many thanks again buddy!!
