Excellent...with a subject like that it's hard to go wrong :)

imadramamama said...

Look at that water! That's awesome!!

Mojo said...

I'm not sure how much luck had to do with it. I think more often a great photograph that you think is "lucky" is just "instinctive".

Besides... I never get lucky when I'm shooting. (It's not for lack of trying though.)

And like Thom said... it's hard to go wrong with a subject like this. I mean can you take a bad picture of Miss Maya? I submit that you cannot.

I'm with Mojo: Not luck at all...it's totally your skill and instinct. They combined to ensure you were ready for THE moment when the water painted the scene with the most dimensional drama.
