Not terribly inspired today, so I just tried to salvage the least underwhelming of today's frames.

Day 20:
You sound like I feel, as you'll see in a few when I post. I like this--flames? Contemplative for sure! Some of that wine would be most appropriate.
Thanks, Nick. I think I snapped about 1500 frames too many yesterday at a cross country meet, none with my Octoberfest lens. I could probably go for a nice glass of wine and some good classical music too.

I can imagine whoever does the patching ... sticks a bag of mortar in the wheel barrow and grumbles, "time to fix the wall again." Trowels it on, and walks away. And that's how you build character!

Very well shot Andy.

Old arch works very well, and having some warm tones on the foreground arch really helps solidify the image.

22. Have you thought about a BW conversion, love the movement aspect of the water, maybe a touch off the left side image? Well done.

I hate to sacrifice the warmth of the morning light (which was fleeting due to cloud cover), but perhaps you're still right. I'll give it a try.

Do you mean crop in from the left?

22: I love the absence of anything that would give a sense of scale, and the rich light.
Thanks for that comment, Nick. I was indeed trying to make the waterfalls look larger. They are, in fact just the ebb of the waves as they crashed up on the embankment. It was a very soggy but enjoyable shooting experience trying to catch the right moment.

As it is still the 22nd, (I hope this is OK...) I'm updating my image with a crop improved by Wade's advice.
