The thumbnail had me puzzled - dark glass? A mineral? Makes a great abstract

The combination of reflections on the surface and what we see through the water is very nicely captured. I like the comp. on this one better than the previous -- very nice light on the water falling as well.

Oversharpeing was the first thing I saw as I opened the large version but it's easily fixed. The image is a delight when you get past the sharpening. This will make a great print and you'll always get people stopping to peer into the water. There are so many things to see in there, the movement and little bubbles and a face, I wish this was mine Barbara it's lovely.
