    All are very nice, you were even able to capture an image of the fish. Beautiful section of Sydney.

    thanks John, I hadnt been there for many years, forgot how nice it was. I also liked the trails left by the fish in number 2 which I didn't notice until I uploaded,

    Cheers

    Very nice Harry. No 2 is well composed with the rocks leading out of the right hand lower corner. I also like 3 with the rocks in the foreground, just one thing with 3 is the red bar at the top of picture which could go if you want to improve it. Well done.

    These gardens can be somewhat challenging to get a nice image, you have done so. I do think #2 and #3 would benifit from a leveling as each is slightly out and not all in the same direction.

    Also, in #3 the red pole is a bit distracting.

    Thanks Paul, any tips on the best way to level? Can you do this with most editing software?

    Yes Harry, most if not more than most have a leveling/rotation tool. Once found you can use the white area the water is hitting after it falls. Bring that level and I think you will be happier.

    Beautiful images of what appears to be a wonderful gardens. I have never been to Sydney or Australia for that matter but your images show it well. Makes me wish I were there.

    Hi Joe - yes it is a great spot - not huge gardens but certainly a beautiful spot right in the heart of the city

    I think they look better. What do you think about them, that's what counts.
