The Weir On The Nith.

By Tooma
We were in Dumfries at the weekend, and despite the weather being dull and grey I still managed some pleasant shots of the River Nith as it flows through the town. Editing software is a big help, oh yes.

The bridge is called Devorgilla Bridge, aka, The Old Bridge. What I like most about this scene is the contrast between the two areas of the river, the calm and reflective pre-weir vs the fast flowing tumbling weir water. Smile

Thought the scene looked good in mono too, so included it in the V.

I like the contrast between the turbulent and the placid water. The lead image brings out the lovely tones of the bridge and surrounding buildings.

Two images that bring back good memories of our visit in 2013, Tom - thank you.
I think I took a photograph from more or less the same spot!

Two delightful images and difficult to pick a favourite so I'm not going to ... then again ... the mono version is very appealing! (I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure Blush ) Once again I am in complete agreement with Mac. SmileSmileSmile

One should be very respectful of this rough and tumble river!--a very descriptive image!

Both versions very impressive Tom , you have made the area look more appealing than I remember.
Both versions work well but I prefer the lead as the colours are so beautiful. Perfectly composed and captured Tom.
