Unfortunately, this exact shot has probably been taken thousands of times. Oh well, this is the first for me...and I like it. Thanks for looking.

That composition may have been taken numerous times but this photo captured a moment in time that will NEVER be replicated.

Awesome shot!

Very nice Ryan.


I just got my first pair of glasses that I didn't think I needed. I apologize to anybody in the past year that I said their pictures were out of focus lol.

Each day, there's different light. Not any two days is anything the same. Nice composition, and colors/mood. Nice gradients.

thank you for all of the replies.

I think everyone would like to create something that they feel is original. However, there's probably a reason that a shot like this has been done many times before . . . it's a pretty good spot.

thanks again,

ryan
