[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this picture in Soldier's Delight nature area, just outside of Baltimore, Maryland (USA). There were some really beautiful rocks in this very shallow stream, and I liked the mix of the reddish brown, black, and golden rocks. I also think the lighting in the photo adds a lot by reflecting off of some of the lighter rocks. What do you think?

Hi Brian,
I Like the idea of this photo and you've captured it well. The colors and light are good. It is always difficult to capture something with water without a polaroid filter. You will get burnout spots realy fast. There are a view burnout spots on your photo, but nothing disturbing. I still need to buy a polaroid filter for my camera, but I can recommend it to buy one.

This is a nice image. I agree with what Niek has told you. I would like to try a lighter frame. Because there are large blackish areas in the photo one's eye sees the frame and the black areas at the same time. I would prefer to see the golds and rusts that you liked so much. When I tried it with a white frame...perhaps with a black line in it, those are the exact rocks that I see first. I like this photo.

1st of all welcome to TN...and wow thank you for adding me to your favorites!! The composition is very nice, the colours, shapen... but I find the black framing a little bit distracting. Best regards!
