The real thing
Went back on friday to redo the session with correct setting on the ISO when suddenly the sunlight from the lake appeared on the floodgate, it only lasted a short while and I put on the tele to get some close up shots off this phenomenon.
1.5s F19 focal length 98mm. I do hope that you like this fleeting moment nearly as much as I did

Great shot. It has a good semi-abstract feel and the motion blur's really effective here.

Good abstract, I love the colour contrast produced by the sun catching on the water coming through the sluice gate.

Didn't look at these others when I saw your most recent image. I think this closer view is good too - but do like the long white columns on the newest one too. This does make the most of the sunlight though and nice bit of texture on the gate above the water.
