How very lovely and satisfying, these heavy textures.
Interesting that you've carried it off mostly in mid-tones.

Don from spokane, United States

A fine abstract with the variety in textures from the water flow. My first impulse was to think "elephant skin." :-) You've captured a wide range of tones in this shot. Impressive!

This angle of view + pp really creates an interesting shot Jack. It evoks for me a photography taken from a satellite. Interesting balance between lights and shadows.
