Default Rum Island Springs, Florida

Hi everone,

This is a photo of a spring adjacent to the Santa Fe River, near High Springs, Florida, called Rum Island Spring. All springs in this area have a temperatur of 68-72 degrees year-around. The water clarity varies, but generally is excellent!

I think all three would benefit from a bit of cropping. 1 & 2 from the bottom, even though that makes 1 a little panoramic. And, 3 from the top.

There isn't anything that can help the overcast sky (except converting to B&W).

A little more "pop" could be added too. I picked #3 as an example:

Hi Ken,

Thank you for the reply! I like what you did with my third photo..which is my favorite of the three BTW. It's been awhile since I posted anything here, and I didn't think to mention that I was using a Kodak point-and-shoot camera on automatic. I also did little if any post-processing on these. That said, I appreciate viewpoints regarding compositon, etc.

Here is my attempt at cropping and a little bit of post-processing. Let me know what you think, please.
