I can totally appreciate the difficulties you had with this shot, both in the taking and the post processing. I think you did a great job, and thanks for the explanations.
The texture is just amazing. AND I can clearly see the water running over the rock. Quite a technical feat. Congratulations.
Great composition, sharpness, light, and colors. TFS. : )
P.S. What is travertine?

Wow, Niek. I missed this incredible detail. But this shot renders it perfectly. The compostion is really pleasant with all those shapes and curves. Thanks for showing us.

Leuke, bijna abstrakte compositie. Fijn dat je uitlegt hoe je de foto hebt genomen. Als ik beter kijk kan ik uiterraard het water voelen, meer dan echt zien.
Well done and TFS

Wow that is a tough shot to handle Neik. It's also even more challenging having to resize the photo for posting here, so even more detail is lost. Maybe take some food colouring with you for the water next time hehe.

Wow, what a cool photo Niek. Very interesting subject and well handled, exposure, light, texture, color, sharpness, composition and enhancement...there...did I leave anything out? : )
Thanks for sharing both the photo and note.

Really interesting rock formation again Niek!
So unusual, it look like a piece of glass art.
Wonderful golden-yellow colours, nice composition the way the water flows down the rock. Nicely framed and interesting notes too.

Wow, amazing crstalline structures, almost as if Mother Nature herself has sculpted a landscape scene. Excellent work on cutting down the reflections, great detail and colours. Excellent shot with an interesting note. Great work!

Very good shot Niek,
I really like the composition. The flowing lines and seams make a good composition. Great shot, well done.
