Snaky Stream

By TrevBatWCC    
Continuing my travels around Keukenhof Gardens I crossed a small bridge going over this narrow stream. I liked the way it snaked its way through the trees and plants, which were reflected in the water. Can't decide which of these two images I prefer - the lead has more of the reflections, but the version shows off better the way the stream snakes its way through the scene.
Another year older today! Sad Shall be going out with friends this evening for a birthday meal TongueTongue

Many thanks to Colleen for her User Award on my previous upload Reflections of Keukenhof... plus Kate (Irishkate) on that same upload, most appreciated Smile

I like both equally and largely for the reasons you suggest. The lead image just edges it for me precisely because of those reflections and for the way the stream occupies more of the foreground before drawing the eye upwards into the frame. Then again, V1 is so rewarding because of the way it appears to accentuate an imaginary vertical line between the trees which is 'picked up' by the white post supporting the railings. Lovely portfolio by the way! Oh, and happy birthday!! Smile
