Well, I'm not the moderator so I won't say yes or no. Nevertheless, it's a nice capture of the wild but with little interest points, IMO.

I think there is a vanishing point in the right center of the shot but as has been mentioned, the shot doesn't hold much interest. There isn't much that stands out as a subject for the photo. I would categorize this shot more as a snapshot documenting a visit to the location. The artistic qualities are lacking.

I speak only for myself. The whole world may disagree with me...and often does!

this shot is in the same creek about 1 hour later....not too sure about converging lines though, unfortunately i had to bring the quality down so much to be able to upload so it lost alot of quality.

Actually, disregarding the lack of converging lines or vanishing points, I think this is a much better photo. You have a definite subject. The composition is better. I would classify this as a photograph, not a snapshot!

I totally agree with Cal here. Very nice colors as well.

Yes, I think the first shot is more on the scale of a documentation (I've been doing that of some small towns in Hawaii) not much flair but theyy tell a story.

The vanishing point is obscured by the vegetation along the stream banks.

Agree with Cal that the second photo is a better dramatic shot but then again no vanishing point.

Aloha
