    one suggestion… I think you could draw more attention to the action (fountain and vessels) if you could crop the top white or even the blue bit… it seems to pull the eye away from the main subjects. I hope this comment does not offend you but if it does I apologize sincerely. Feel free to delete this comment.

    I agree Dorit. There is another shot from this session here:

    I will probably re-edit this one too.
