This is the Mohawk river near Lock 7, shot from the end of the pier. The clouds and mist were very cool--we had just come back from Philadelphia, and I noticed the clouds so I decided to head over to the lock, which is only a few miles from my house.

Hope this ribbons. A beautiful composition of an amazing setting - surreal and almost like a painting. I would love to hang it on my wall when the mood suits me.

WOW!!! incredible!

Great mood piece, great contrast, reflections, etc. The vignetting pulls you into the center, where really the only thing the eye has to focus on is the little island. I love looking at the contrast etc, but in the end my eye is looking for a place to go. I guess since the vignetting is pulling to the center I should be looking into the center. Which is off in a foggy distance. Could be that this is s dark way of looking at the future? beautiful but at the same time kind of menacing, so watch your step! hehe.. well done.
