water_angel's Entry

 

Rules:

- One entry per person.

- Picture has to be made by yourself and can't be just a reproduction of someone's work. If someone else's work is in the picture, there needs to be something extra.

- No manipulation besides basic photo adjustments (contrast, exposure, cropping, color balance, lighting, etc.).

- No text or framing in the photo. A signature/watermark is just fine, but it's preferable if you don't have "O Hai Eye Hav3 T3XT" (or something similar) present in the photo.

- When voting, please don't select your own image. This will ensure fairness.

- You are free to submit an old photo; you don't need to take a new one just for this competition.

- Winner hosts the next contest.

Taken at Watkin's Glen State Park in the USA a few years ago. The gorge is amazing to walk down, and really makes you think about just how powerful water can be!

That one is my entry, but here is an album for anyone curious about the park/gorge. This river has been running for a long time. If you ever get the chance to go, it is a really amazing place and truly breathtaking in the Fall. I'd love to go back with a better camera than just my phone someday.

Voted, thank you all for sharing such lovely pieces - don't forget a simple vote is what we need to help show support & remind people to get cultured and come see some art and vote. Who knows, maybe they will be inspired. Or just be more cultured. Or want to do photos in the future. Or relax to the lovely gentleness these photos bring to mind. We could all use more calm and mindfulness. Share & Enjoy!

We are getting a lot of votes this round and time is still open, and there are ties, and many others who aren't far behind. Get your votes in! Enjoy the lovely images and make sure you keep up on these threads during the Holiday fun because the pictures are always great and we can all use some inspiration during the Holidays and time in between, and maybe consider taking a photo for that round's theme and maybe post an image. You don't have to win, it is wonderful to share art & creativity. You never know what it will inspire and gift to others!
