Symmetry works well here to give this image a stately appearance. Lighting is engaging and welcoming. I like!

The aging but solid walls contrast nicely with the fresh flowing water.

Rule of thirds would have made this a great picture

Great leading lines here, makes me want to explore what's beyond that distant bridge. Perfect exposure too. Great Job!

I like this shot, but to improve maybe make your exposure longer to make the water look silky.

Still a good photo, good DOF to get all the detail in. [8]

Very interesting location to shot. Composition is pretty good, but maybe a panoramic vertical shot in which more of the top and the bottom is shown to the view may have more of an impact.

Currently the viewers eyes are lead from the bottom up. With more of the top showing your eyes would flow from the top down just like the water.

Like it, especially with the water still flowing.
