It is amazing how the senses of movement are still popping out of the flat image although all the actions are frozen at the moments. The compositions are also perfectly handled where the depth of the photographs are enhanced through the arrangement of the key focal point - the water streams, and the lone figures that appear in the side of each photo.

I think the colour theme of black and white is also a very essential key to producing such wonderful outcomes. It, firstly, applies a very still and silent atmosphere to the picture right away, making people focus on the things going on in the photos. Every details shapes and movements of the water are clearly presented in contrast to the dark background, and produce magnificent visual effects. The shadows on the ground are also very influential, where it adds the element of patterns and textures to the picture and enrich the contents.
