Surrounded by towering cliffs and dense monsoon rainforest, it's easy to be lost in your own world at remote Motorcar Falls, Kakadu National Park.

This setting invokes a feeling of being 'calm and peaceful.' I can almost hear the rippling of the waterfall coming down the rock cliff into the water, as I contemplate diving into the pristine water and prepare to meditate on the peacefulness of a tranquil moment.

Very inviting and 'serene.'

Having been to Motor Car Falls, I can see that you have captured its serenity. I can almost remember the rainbowfish chasing each other around my toes and the butterflies crowding into the shade in the crevice on the left. It is the kind of place I would love to spend more time, but the knowledge of the background radiation dose accrued in this part of Kakadu, would always be in the back of my mind, somewhat reducing my serenity.

This shot makes we wish I was there, and the contrast of rocks above and below the water is great.

A marvelous picture! The woman does add scale to the image but I fear that her position may have interfered with the rhythm of the shot but it still gets my nomination as a worthy finalist.
