Legend tells that Soca was the youngest of three sisters, along with Drava and Sava. She was always late, and that's the reason why she is rushing directly into the sea, jumping from stone to stone, instead of the steady flow of her northernmost sisters.
Soca has a unique colour f the water, deep green. The steep profile makes it suitable for rafting, canyoning and other adrenalinic wet sports.
Technical: polariser to underscore the cleanliness of the water, continuous shooting mode to get several shots (I chose the most dynamic one), contrast mask to soften a bit the contrast and add some saturation (truly, the colour of Soca is... nah, you have to see it), resizing and sharpening.

Hi, Marko! I've just read you on the forum, and then your intro. And here I am to comment on this photo with no critiques (yeah, I hate it too...). The colours of the photo are good (I haven't seen the Soca, of course) and crisp. Textures are very well transmitted. And light and sharpness are perfect. So, what's the problem? I think the shot is not very engaging because the boat and the rafters are escaping from us, with their back to us. Maybe if they were a bit lower in the composition it would be more dynamic (I know they have space on the left, but I would appreciate more space above them). It's a good photo, and it must have been difficult to take it, but it lacks something... Have you tried cropping for a different composition? It might do... I've posted a workshop with a different cropping just to see the difference; I hope you don't mind it.
I hope this may be of some help.
TFS, and take care :-)
