Nicely done, beautiful tones. I've been putting off another trip to PHL until there's more snow there

Cool picture and nice job with composition and exposure. Sure looks different with snow from when I shot it in the fall last year.


I want to guest blog on your Landscape / Travel photography blog, PM for details

I agree with the others. Beautiful scene, great composition. I think this would look good as a B&W also. Nicely done.:-)

Thanks everyone. I tried this in B&W and didn't like it as much. For anyone in the Portland, Maine, area, this place is an absolute must. Very easy to photograph. I would get there very early in the morning (best) or late in the day to avoid the crowds.

Very nice photo, I like the dusting of snow as it still allows the rocks to show thru.

I decided to give B&W another shot. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

REALLY like the colour version. So well composed, and just enough movement in the water to show some power, yet not take away from the rest of the scene.

Yes, I would agree. Also, I think the color version picks up the dusting of snow much better. Thank you.

B&W version looks good, but colour one works better for me.

Really hard to pick one over the other. Both look great!
