Christmas fountain at Palo Verde Golf Course, Sun Lakes, Arizona

By raydio
Couldn't resist this while driving home one night (whilst holidaying in AZ). Got the tripod out, used delay shutter and slow speed, no photo editing except to bring out a few highlights from the dark. (taken in Dec. 2012)

This is quite spectacular, Ray, and I love the bright red against the black background.
Your symmetry is very good, and the fountain centre is perfectly positioned, but there is just a small lean to the right which is obvious at the point where the curve meets the water. I have corrected this in my modification and have also attempted to clone out the glare at the point where the water is emerging. A crop was necessary after the straightening.
Since there is a nice reflection in the water, I wonder if you considered a vertical format in order to be able to include all of it. But perhaps this wasn't possible.

An effective and colourful night shot. It is always worthwhile checking for level before uploading, we here in EPZ seem to have 'eyes on a stick'.

Thanks to all who responded! Much appreciated. Heading back to AZ in April to catch the desert in bloom.
