Deadwood along the Mississippi

A pair of images long the Mississippi River, just above the Clark Bridge in Alton.
A mediocre composition overall, But I like it. It is also an interesting contrast to the repeat from 7/18/2005 (Linville River - scroll down). Both B&W images of rivers, but are as different as the rivers themselves. One key?? Shutter speed. Both of these images (above) were shot at 1/250th sec, freezing the water. Linville River was shot at 1/40th sec, to provide a smoother feel…

Interesting how things really don't change much.
I'm not sure which I like better either, so...I'll say I like them both..

I'm afraid I confused things... I added a second image of the Mississippi, because I liked it a tiny bit better. But that seem's to have led to confision with my Linville River comment, which referrs to a post earler in the day...

My bad. I've rearranced and tweaked to (hopefully) make it clearer...
