Extraordinary Elizabeth!

I love the contrast between the rounded, swirling curves in the water and the sharp, pointy, contrasty leaves above it. Everything looks so crisp in the picture, and the slice was chosen perfectly. Thumbs up

I agree with everyone.
Unending abstract art, changing moment by moment.
Hypnotic & calming.

Good job. Thumbs up

I want to express special thanks to everyone who offered positive encouragement for this banner, since I realize it represents a departure for the usual fare. Water features do form wonderful parts of many gardens, though, so perhaps it wasn't too much of a stretch. I am a self-confessed addict of studying the play of light on moving water (rivers, ponds, fountains, waterfalls, birdbaths, even puddles of rain water, with raindrops splashing in them), so thanks again for indulging me on this one. I agree with @EscondidoCal that watching reflections like the ones depicted can be hypnotic and calming, sort of like watching flames flickering in a fireplace or a campfire.
Thank You! Smiling Thank You! Smiling Thank You!

I agree Water seems to add so much to a landscape or an image. Excellent banner, Elizabeth! Smiling
