What a great reflection. It so three dimensional. Almost looks like a painting to me.

Wow!!!!!
art is everywhere but it takes real talent to find it like you did.
I love the large one because you "captured" the face of a water sprite!

Really uniquely beautiful shots - exquisite! Love both.

I love it it's so liquid. I guess that sounds funny but it's really a great capture of liquid movement,shadows and reflections in B&W.
Very nice!

Great shots of interesting reflections! I love taking photo of water myself, it is so fun to come home and check out what I really photographed!

To answer your question obout UV-filter on the glassconstruction; Yes, I believe it has UV-filter. Mostly to protect the old ruins, but also as shelter for people visiting. You can get marred there, and the glass then protects against rain - and sun!

Stunning! Both of them.

Oh, my! These are breathtaking. I love these! It's great that you can sometimes get two great shots out of one. If you had not said one was the bigger version I would never have guessed.

Wonderful reflections!! I don't think I have seen water with those large undulations! They really make for a lovely shot!
