Hi Rusty, thanks for the crop. This view has the rock a bit below center in the vertical direction, and leaving the back bank helps reduce the feeling of looking down.
I had a play of my own. This crop has the waterfall at the 1/3 but still keeps the rock centered, not sure how I could fix that with a crop. I also cloned out some brush and finally I flipped it. I will show both versions.
For me, the stream directs the eye off-image in the first; conversely in the second, the rocks serve to hold one's view and return it to the image...just sort of makes me feel more comfortable looking at it.
Thanks Bob, I assume you mean the flipped image works best. When I took this, I was not even considering that the rock would dominate the stream, it was just sort of background. But even I see that now. It really helps to have other eyes on it to get perspective.
