A very fine image. I like the high-contrast and the square format. The exposure produecs a very soft effect on the water.

I agree. And it's nice to see you getting out of the city (or at least to some place that sure doesn't look like Philly!)

This is actually in Philadelphia. We have one of the biggest urban park systems in the country.

I've seen this image a hundred times...thousands?  

I prefer your urban work. I understand that it's nice to have an aside from that but this puzzles me because you really just branded this shot as a sort of typical treatment;blurred-soft waterfall thingy with some black and white cooking. To be honest, if I ever see this waterfall type thing again I'll  pry my eyes out with my door key. This goes for lots of things...rocks> water> mountain> leading to sunset..on and on.

IMO, your much to focused a photographer to be putting an image like this up here for a "critique". I'm pretty sure you already know what's up with this image...

Michael, Afraid I'll have to agree with Pete. A momentary lapse I'd guess.

As one of the gazillion milky waterfall photos pleasing (hurting?) our eyes everyday on the web, this is a better executed one, with nice tonality and composition... yet, ultimately, nothing really to write home about. However, as an integral part of your body of work (big fan, btw) it has its place, as one facet of the multi-faceted entities that today's urban communities are (given that it is a part of an urban park system). And even without the urban link, it would fit into your portfolio simply because of the unifying esthetics.

Thank you.

This is a break in this historic dam that's due to be fixed, it also the beginning of a body of work that I plan to spend a lot of time on over the next year.

I think Slobodan said it very well, and I look forward to the results of your new project.
