[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This small waterfall was flowing down between rocks during one of my mountain picnics (on Mt Spil).

I sat beside the river and watched it for at least 15 minutes. It gave me a mixture of joy and tranquillity at the same time.

I probably could not reflect the joy and the tranquillity elements within the picture but at least i intended to do it:)

Mt. Spil

Situated in the city of Manisa within the Aegean region of Turkey, this mountain is rich in flora and fauna, history and mythology. Niobe (the mythical weeping rock) and a relief of Cybele (Goddess of fertility) stand on this sacred mountain of Cybele. There are also a national park, Manisa Castle and many old caves within the mountain.

Thank you for viewing my picture.

Hello Serhan,
Lovely composition, I like the way you make use of the lines in the waterway here..!
Fine deatils in the rock as contrasted to the blurred waterfall... Good colours & fine details!

Hello Serhan,

Nice shot. It's a nice view and pretty good composition. I think a longer shutter speed would have been nice and I think the white balance is a little too cool - giving the white water a blue tint I also think it needs a little clockwise rotation. Well done.
