[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In spring the Potomac carries huge amounts of water, as it crashes through the rocks at Great Falls, Maryland, tossing aside huge trees as if they were matchsticks. The B&W seems to bring out the power of the river better than color does. This is one of 4 I will post.

Hello Alan,
There are times when B&W works out and times it doesn't, this is one in which, like you, I believe it enhances the water. Nicely focused and framed just right, we can definitely get a feel for the awesome power of the rushing waters. Well done!!

Hello Alan
I agree with Ron.The B&W here works very well once it brings force to the water.Excellent sharpness.Thank You.
Have a good day!
Best regards
