Beautiful. It looks like a wonderful place to relax in the summer. You really captured it.

Willow and Nick, Thanks for the complements guys. I was just walking down by the falls and turned to look back and saw the shot and just had to take it.

Yes, wonderfully conceived and achieved.

It must be magic to be on that long porch...kickin' back and listening to "water music".

This is a great shot, it could be in one of those calenders. I have a couple of suggestions that I hope will be taken constructively. If you could make the sky a deeper blue that would be cool (now if you took the shot with a polarizer, could you have gotten a bluer sky?-I still don't know what the polarizer is really for). Also the bottom right of the photo up to the wall (including the wall)is too dark, if you could lighten that up, I think it would really enhance the impact of the photo. I think there is something called a dodge tool in PS, can someone help me out here? I used to burn and dodge when I took b&w photo. But I am still PS illiterate,even thoughI just got PS-cs. Pop Photography had some cool tips and there is a tutorial whenu start the program, but I need to meditate or have a glass (or 4) of wine b4 I attempt learning that program.The main thing is that the framing is perfect as well as the mood. As a photographer you did your job, now you just have to have it printed/enhanced by a computer person. I think of this like we do in the field of art direction, you get a great photo, then you give it to a different party who prints it the way the art director wants, but I know here we try to be a jack of all trades (I can be the "Jill").

Very nice and serene shot; I love it :cool:

As of what I read about polarizers, I think this scene is quite "critical" to usingone. The shadows will go darker, the nice reflections in the water will be killed, and it will either lose some DOF, or the water get's blurred by a slower shutter. Just not sure if adeeper blue sky is worth it...
