28 Apr 11.  During our last visit to the property we had a few minutes to wait for the Kingston ferry, so I decided to do a little photography around the terminal waiting area. As part of the landscaping there is a very nice little waterfall and pond, about the size you might put in your front yard, so not very big as park area displays go, but very nice just the same. It had apparently been the site for a visit from either St Patrick or one of his devotees, for the water flowing in it was a definite blue-green. It made for an intriguing display as the water was changing color as it flowed over the spillway. I took a few shots of it and decided that they really wouldn't stand on their own, so I did a little "enhancing" of the one I'm sharing. Not much actually, basically just a bit of heavy over sharpening and contrast increase, then a masking of that on the water portions leaving just the rock work with the effect. The result gives the rocks a speckled gold look while simultaneously strengthening the colors of the water. It is very much a poster type image that I think you will either like a lot or not at all. ISO 200; 1/25 sec @ f / 36 (to blur the water) hand held.
