This is the November 24 post cropped to a square aspect ratio.

I do like this crop better than the previous one. This one tells more of the story of what is going on.

The focus on rich color and detail is wonderful. The square format often eliminates unnecessary peripheral information from the original frame.

Very interesting exercise, Jack. I like the original version with the rushing water in the foreground. However, this square crop is better - what I like is the way you frame the colours and textures of the cliff face - the most interesting aspect to the image.

The square format looks good. I used to shoot with a Rolleiflex which produced square negatives… fine alternative to the rectangles we use all the time.

yep, I love square as well, it has that "Hassleblad" quality feel to it

What rich colors and strong current in the water. Love the cliffs.

I always think when I see stones like this on the face of a cliff, they provide an ancient
beauty or patina that only the vast space of time can give. Magnificent.
