I say this is a very delicate waterfall. Well managed exposure and color balance, and a good crop.
The saturation is just right and your choice of low-key green frame is pleasantly complimenting the whole scene.
(I found your use of color frames - or should I say mattings - very effective.) I personally thought that
for this image you could have used pure white for the inner frame (mat's core)
but that would distract the viewer's eye from the water too much..? -K.

Default To KiiT: frame

Dear Kei, thanks for your critique.
I let Photoshop to choose the colors of the frames. It is very simple - Blur-Average - gives me average color of the image and that is the one I use for the border. Its because it (at 99%) matches the image, complements it and does not distract from it. The thin core-border is made the same way, only the brightness of it is set to app. 90%. From time I play with the colors a bit more, when I am not satisfied with the average color setting.
I will try to set the inner border to white according to your idea and Ill tell you how it looked. But the one Ive posted was fine with me :-)

Greeting from Slovakia!

Dear Adrian:
Thank you for the follow-up - ahh that is the key (viva technology)!
Thank you for the tip,, I might try that myself.
Oh, if the white core did not look very good, please keep it to yourself ;P

Greetings from Japan :D
