#3 looks great. Love the way the 'slab' leads out into the water with the markings on the slab, the splash of green on the left, and the disappearing creek...

Jim, #2 with the reflection gives this photo a true 3D look to it. Two things I want to do one day, take a photo as good as yours and second is to get up early enough in the morning to be able to do so. take care, great shots Bob

I like the 2nd shot best. The detail from top to bottom keeps interest. The bottom half or so with the water flowing between the two boulders cropped could almost pass for an aerial shot. I wonder what this would look like as a b&w conversion? Another thought would be to crop out the trees to the very edge of the rounded boulder upper left while retaining the trees in the reflection. The remaining bushes in the center top would still lend depth of the composition. I didn't mean for this to turn into a critique. I think this particular piece works in many ways. Just MHO..I doubt I will ever acheive the results many of you post. Thanks for sharing your morning to us.

I wonder if you have tried to crop the real tree completely out, but keep the reflection pool in, so that only the granite and the water are in the frame.

I will try that angle the next time I am there. Could have gone lower and changed the angle downwards a bit more. Will post if I shoot here again. JIM
