Water Statues Standing Tall by taffy

Water Statues Standing Tall

Somewhere along 6th Avenue and 56th Street there is a beautiful fountain in front of a large office building. I thought the water spouts looked like a family, or sentries, or chess pieces. Processed in Silver Efex.
What an interesting composition you've made here, and the processing is beautiful for showing off the fountain to have drama!

What a lovely find - wonder what a longish exposure would be like ...

I love how this turned out almost only in black and white tones and the composition, slplit in two makes it very interesting.

Such a dramatic effect - the Silver Efex seems so versatile - wonderful results on buildings and on moving water.

I love he way your 'family' all seem to be in conversation. A really wonderful fountain shot.

Beautiful, I love the processing, the way they are singled out.

It reminds me of the Lady of the Lake in the Arthurian legends, her hand suddenly thrusting above the surface holding Excalibur. The darkness of the water around makes it seem so still with an eruption of life where the fountains are.
