Water on the rocks

By Frankphoto
I made this photo during a tour of the farm in the countryside, I arrived early to have a little light, neutral density filter used to enhance the effect of freezing the water. I think I got a good effect.

A good capture Frank. Have you tried cropping the top to just below where the water starts then re-sizing the image back to it's original size and lighten a touch. If you have elements you could lightly put a warming filter over it and the remove from certain parts. Don't shot me Frank it's only a thought but either way it's a nicley captured water image using a 104 exp.

Shame you didn't have better light as this looks to be an interesting location.

I like that the water flows from top left to bottom right, and I am generally happy with the blur in the water (although maybe a little less would have been nice).

I am however a little distracted by the rock that intrudes at the bottom. I may have tried to lose it at the composing stage, or have used the clone tool to make it "disappear".

Hi mhfore.
I appreciate your comment, do not worry because I understand that each person has his own perspective on each photo.
As the place was a bit dark and deserted, they preferred to use shades of color to portray the environment I was feeling at the moment. But surely there can be several ways to think about a photograph.
Thank you.

Hi John_Frid.
Thank you for your comment. Really there are several possibilities for a photograph and each person has one or more versions of interpretation. Your idea about the rock at the bottom of the photograph I had not thought at the time of publishing, but it's interesting.
It was my first experience with this type of photography of water and will improve with time. Thank you.
