    I would dearly LOVE to see how those guys would butcher this image. As far as cropping. Yes, a smidgeon might be shaved off the top. otherwise...hands off!

    Didn't crop but did do some distortion control because you had to shoot from a less than perfect angle (water seeks its own level) and did some cloning for what I think might be a sign, upper middle left and just for grins and giggles, slightly adjusted the darks and lights to create a bit more drama in the foreground to help pull it away from the background. Just another set of eyes and only meant as a suggestion.

    Not claiming this is my best. I am hoping someone has the skill and time to edit this. Please make the lower old building black & White while leaving to top color. Thanks

    Looks nice and I was stuck with that angle as my feet were actually in the water. Normally that fall is 20 feet down the river just so high up

    I like the original shot, and the very nice edit by @bulldurham. Nice shooting!

    BTW if anybody wants to seem some very impressive scale modeling work, check out the OP's signature link!

    Thanks But I think some the images arent working as there was some weird thing happen. I will probably change it over to Photography site but I dont know squat about web design or anything. Last time I tried word press and people were getting all kinds of attack errors thats when my site got all screwed up. The last movie Modeling I did was the full scale mini sub for transformers 5 and before that the full scale B-24 for the movie Unbroken

    BTW what does the OP mean next to my name? 'Onery Person lol if so that fits me

    I like the shot, I think I’d have edited differently because of personal taste and to be honest maybe trim not crop, just a touch. I’m a sucker for closing in images like this with a vignette just to hold the eye and not to let it wander out of the frame. All in all, you know the story you wanted to tell, the fallen log, the concrete of industry and turbulence of the water all speak of change to me..

    Thanks Susan I had been taking all the critiques and tips from the guys and took my time setting it up and shot it. I had both feet in the river just to get a good angle on it. This summer when the river is down to normal I want to go back and shoot that same corner. but with all the rain in recent years the river bed hasn't been showing like it normally does as I can usually get about 10 feet into the river and still be dry
