Old Dam

Old Dam

This is the old dam near the Ainola villa in Zelenogorsk. Besides the stones in the stream I like the golden gleam on the water, where it starts to fall down.

A very nice capture. I think I may have cropped at the top edge of the wall, but thats just my opinion Smile ....Steve

Steve, thanks. I've thought about cropping of the top edge and decided to leave it as is... Not sure that I'm right Smile

It's ok this way, but you are right. If cropped right to the edge, (don't lose that space above the arch) then cloning in some more stone for the far left, it gives you a whole different feel for the size of the bridge. Otherwise, I'd try a third more of the trees and foliage added to the top of this photo. At any rate, I love the rich tones and the blurred water cascades. The rocks are great especially that large heart shaped one. You have a good eye. Amanda
