Default falling water

I can't really call this a waterfall, more that it is falling water. They drill holes into the side of cliffs here so the water can drain out, and not crack the rock. This is a picture of water flowing out of one of the holes.

G'day mate

Well - you're right ... it's not a waterfall - but that's okay by me
However, you have placed the image into the photo critique section so may I offer some cc

To me, the image consists of 3 parts - the lighting in use; the moving water and the background

The lighting & the background bother me - so I ponder - how can the background be deleted and how can the lighting be changed to make the water 'sparkle'?
My solution would be to try again in much lower light [so the background is lost] and to make the water sparkle via a bright hand-torch or a second camera-flash located either left or right of the frame

Would any of this be possible?

I'll try again when everything is just right. Although I can't remember which of these I took this picture from. And in the summer time most of these holes are running dry. The wall faces east, and in the "Wet season" the sun doesn't get over the wall far enough to be of any help. a big enough light facing onto the wall might help, if it was diffused and not reflecting off the water on the wall.

Next week we're suppose to get a run of sun, and we've had a ton of rain... Maybe I can get lucky with natural light.. I dislike using artificial light..
