Hopefully you'll come across this comment ...

I deleted the first version of this composition and replaced it with this one. You had left some very kind remarks on the first copy - I'm very sorry to have lost those words!

I like that set of functions you've used to create this picture. Great job!

I admire your tenacity at getting just the right processing of this - and other - shots. Showing them side by side makes it easy to tell the differences, while each of them alone would have impressed me as really enviable shots. I think I like this one a bit better because it has a bit more contrast. I do remember my comment on the first take, and it stil stands: I like the way my eyes are guides through this photo from the water along the rocks to the mill and back. Great shot! Needs a frame and a nice place on the wall!

diamant_onix, thank you - I am very pleased with the outcome.

Jeroen, This is one (and the yellow snow that you saw) helped me uncover that color problem. This one may have a green tint to it but I'm leaving it here ... I like it!

diego, thank you very much - I'm very happy that you like this one.

This is the Glade Spring Grist Mill located at West Virginia’s Babcock State Park.

The Glade Creek Grist Mill is a fully operable grain mill that was completed in 1976. This mill was built as a re-creation of one which once existed on Glade Creek long before the site became a state park. Known as Cooper’s Mill, it stood on the present location of the park’s administration building parking lot.

Of special interest, the mill was created by combining parts and pieces from three mills which once dotted the state. The basic structure of the mill came from the Stoney Creek Grist Mill which dates back to 1890. It was dismantled and moved piece by piece to Babcock State Park from a spot near Campbelltown, West Virginia. After an accidental fire destroyed the Spring Run Grist Mill near Petersburg, West Virginia, only the overshot water wheel could be salvaged. Other parts for the mill came from the Onego Grist Mill near Seneca Rocks, West Virginia.
