Nikon D2H 19 mm. 1/90 sec. f.11 200 iso
I have returned to this image several times. It was taken a late afternon after rainfall and underexp. I have used Lightroom and Lightzone trying to get a picture.
I know the V point is allmost in center.

This image is well composed, but I think that it would benefit from some local contrast enhancement (http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/contrast-enhancement.shtml). It just doesn't "pop" the way that it could. USM at a radius of 50 and a strength of 20% could help a lot. The Clarity slider in Lightroom creates a similar effect.

Composition wise I think it is a strong image, I like the vantage point looking straight down the stream to the v in the distance. Not sure if a lower angle may have been possible, I like how from this vantage it feels like your are almost in the stream, a lower angle I think would intensify this perspective. I think there are some improvements that can be made in post processing as David mentioned.

Thanks David and Jason,

I haven´t used the LR Clarity slider before even it shown´s in the Video Tutorial.
It really makes a difference.
