This certainly looks like an interesting place - not least for photography!
I particulrly like the way the structure in the background - perhaps a viaduct - looms, half seen, in the trees.
Lovely setting great picture but a little over exposed. Is that a cliff face or a big bridge in the background as it looks like an arch. A truly beautiful place
This is a lovely picture, I dont think you have over done your adjustments at all. There are great colours and I love the reflections in the water.
Looks a fantastic place for photography.
Hey Bill I am glad to see you on my friend.
I am a fan of your shots for sure, like this one here.
New Mills is situated on the borders of North West Derbyshire and Cheshire ? Than I have to write it in my agenda.It looks to me a fantastic scene from'The Lords of the Ring'
Good weekend Bill
A symphony in green! Superb shot, Mr. Fitzgerald.
Well done! I know this location well, and I think you have captured beautifully those elements which make it such a fascinating place. Cliff, rock, stone, ruination, the dominance of nature, and that water! A smashing photo, Bill.

This is a great picture, nice sharpness and details from a good POV, I like the reflections in the water, the only thing I would change here is just to straighten the picture as it leans to the left slightly.
Cool place Bill... Lovely shot with amazing reflections...
Places like this make me feel so much at home in the UK... it's a funny feeling. Being at home in a country where you have only been just a few short visits.... ;-)
Can't help it.. it's just the way I feel
Wow Bill! I love this shot of the ruins. the extent of detail is simply amazing and almost mystical. This reminds me of the jigsaw puzzles that my mom does - so filled with details. One can't apologize for the weather, that is what creates the challenge. This is definitely a place worth visiting.
Beautiful place , beautiful photo, good light,colors,reflex....
Hi Bill,I like your composition,you have captured the feeling of time gone by with those ruins.I wonder how much of a drop there is for the river to tumble down too.Is that a hint of a much larger bridge & also a cliff wall just through the trees?
Nice green reflections + those of the grasses &trees.
I like the composure aof the shot, well done with the colors bg pov
Thanks for sharing this, it caught my eye as it looks like Dartmoor also----the tonal gradients are good--and it s a really peaceful image----Lynne
amazing shot of this fantastic looking place and view.. that's what i love about England full of historical past.. well capture with very fine detail and sharpness.. perfect in my eyes. i hope you don't mind im going to put this in my favourite.. well done.
Simply a beautiful shot, Bill. Can't see anything to fault - it is clear, sharp, well composed and that glassy reflection is a real delight. A very nice photograph indeed - well done!
You shot the moon here my friend

For me t is a '' Silver Tulip Award 'photo and I did take the liberty to add you to the Friday Green theme .

I love industrial arcitecture! Very few could build like the victorians. This is amazing the reflections are perfect and the subject is brilliant.
The "more than customary adjustment" does not show at all, it looks great considering the light was so bad.
Good reflection in water,
Great work with green colour,
And a nice note,
Beautiful composition and POV.
Looks very old ruines. Like the mood here.
Well done friend.
WOW what an outstanding view I cant believe such a pretty place exists in England too I thought this was a castle romains for europe when I saw it first in the gallery.
Lovely capture with excellent detail and reflection.
TFS and for joining in the theme
kind regards Helen
I really like your composition with the semi derelict buildings alongside the natural vegetation.The bridge is perfectly placed.
The reflections are beautiful.You managed the light particularly well,your 'adjustments' have enhanced the picture.
We used to drive quite close to New Mills but I was never aware of this place.
Tfs, regards Jean.
Ohhhhh BILL !!!
I loooove this!
A view from the Cinderella fairy-tale!
A beuaty !
This is a superb capture. Excellent light, great brghtness and contrast. The reflections are outstanding the soft colours perfect. A very attractive image in my opinion. Job well done my friend!
Hi Bill !
this is a very attractive image. The lush greens are a delight to the eye and it's very sharp too !
Best regards, Daniel
