Donna , that works for me , but then again it was my suggestion
> i've photoed lots of those distinctive scudding ' foreground ' clouds
as the main subject
but never tried to work them with this scale/context .
the changes of the pools look good to me ,
and now i'm bouncing around with the dark values/lines ...
> the pool center going left is more distinct now , and
softening that would bring my eye up to the base/value of the treelines ,
as i imagine it ...
since there is blue on the left , and ochre on the right
those dark lines might go fuzzy a bit ... ?
