    Great photo. You'll have to be the judge of it, but I'd see how it looks if you cut off the bottom 1/4, at the bottom of the "bubble", so the tree isn't centered vertically. If you maintain the proportions, that'll take a lot off the sides. Maybe that's too much, so you might also see how it looks if you take off the bottom ~10%, at that segment in the column. And I absolutely would not do it in color - a shot like that begs for B&W.

    Yeah I didn't touch it. I dunno what it's called. Like when you put your hand on the bottom, water moves up it. I took some more pics along with that one, but they kinda show what it is.

    Thanks. I'll try editing it and see how it looks.

    Looks great! Hey, all photographers "edit" their photos - it doesn't compromise the piece at all. Especially an "art shot". Make it look the way you want, however you want. Keep it up - you have some talent.

    Your edit makes my original photo look like crap. Lol, now whenever I look at my pic, it's all fuzzy. Ah well, thanks for editing it.

    That's a nice edit, but it would have been impossible without your original. You saw something most people would never see. That's art. Keep working on the art and on the craftsmanship of photography and you'll do fine. Plenty of people get the technical part, but the art is what separates the great photographers.
