Mill Sketch
2

Comments and critique welcome! This is an old grist mill located on a spring in southern Missouri.  I thought it would look good as a fine pencil sketch.

Re: Mill Sketch

A very nice photograph/sketch enhancement!  The reflection in the pool is awesome... which leads me to believe there may be even a more awesome picture with a large crop... perhaps (?)  Thanks for sharing & HAGD

Re: Mill Sketch

Thanks, Bob.  Yes, there was a larger crop.  I cropped down to 8"x10" for print.   I will try and do the original crop and post it.

Nice Image, Nice Clarity, as Bob 1 said maybe a crop would help to centre the eye.. A charcoal sketch would be interesting..  L

Re: Mill Sketch

On second thought, I think you nailed it on the first crop... NICE!

Re: Mill Sketch

Very nice image (from one ex-St.Louisian to one still there). Lived there for 70+ years. Moved to Texas to be with grand kids
