[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Rhine Falls are the largest plain waterfalls in Europe (Webcamera).

The falls are located on the High Rhine between the municipalities of Neuhausen am Rheinfall and Laufen-Uhwiesen, near the town of Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland, between the cantons of Schaffhausen and Zürich. They are 150 m (450 ft) wide and 23 m (75 ft) high. In the winter months, the average water flow is 250 m³/s, while in the summer, the average water flow is 700 m³/s. The highest flow ever measured was 1,250 m³/s in 1965; and the lowest, 95 m³/s in 1921.

The falls cannot be climbed by fish, except by eels that are able to worm their way up over the rocks.

As I look longer, the photo gets me...
But if your POV could be a little lower, maybe it would be impressive. The photo is a little flat now..

dear Alex,
a very dynamic shot of the beautiful fall.
the water and the rocks make one wonderful stage,
white water and dark rocks are essential contrast of this image and of its meaning for suggestions.
I can hear the roaring sound of water,
and also I can feel the very cool wind there.
thank you for your nice shot,
