    Killing time to day while waiting for my wife, found this "man-made" feature in an urban business park. Seemed like a good opportunity to work with "Pixel Shift" and moving water. Normally any movement kills it, but if you slow down the shutter to blur the water, it doesn't seem to matter. Another learning experience. I started to clone out the little sign on the left side, but decided to see how sharp it was instead, #2 is a substantially enlarged crop of it. C&C as always, is welcome

    Revisited the "Pixel Shift" image in LR with B&W conversion. Not sure which one is better now?

    Thanks. Wish I could have cropped a little different, but streets, buildings and parking lots, got in the way.

    Thanks JC. I don't utilize "PS" as much as I should because of issues with movement and the additional work involved in processing, but when the conditions are right it does a great job.

    I would love to see more of the reflection of the waterfall. Perhaps a wider angle and portrait.

    Unfortunate reality of the business park setting is the fact that they seem to think they need ugly parking lots, streets, etc. In convenient locations for the people working there. Shot this from a parking lot, across a busy 4 lane access road.

    Nice. It seems to be leaning a little to the left
