A rainbow caught in 'The willow Tree Fountain' at Chatsworth.
This fountain was originally built in 1692.
Really? Wow! Did you use any sort of enhancement, or just maxed the sharpness...it's fabulous, very Artsy ;)

@Lorraine: I made the image more contrasty, and over saturated the colours to bring out the rainbow. I used a Canon G7 compact, which gives quite sharp results, but then upped the sharpness in Photoshop....as I liked the effect, and rarely mess about with the sharpness settings, and wanted to do something different.
A truly great shot.fantastic colours.

@MaryP: The gardens are beautiful. The sunlight at this time of year is just right for making the rainbow in the waterfall appear.
great color and the water just makes it so fluid... great capture

This highly sharpened and saturated style works well here - good idea Richard.

surreal - this looks like something photoshopped with the statue in the background... lovely to witness such an unusual sight. good eye!

@baobab: It was amazing to see this sight, and incredible to think that it was created in 1692. You can see this beautiful rainbow whenever the sun is shining on this fountain.

This is clever stuff, indeed. Almost like fireworks !

Great capture. Is there post-traitment on it or is it just reality ? Anyway it's beautiful !!

@Evelyne Dubos: The waterfall, rainbow and statue are all real, and I was just lucky to be there at the right time. My PP in Photoshop was to increase the colour saturation and the contrast, and to add some sharpening, as this brought out the colours better.
wow the colors are so vibrant, lovely effect with the water Lovely

You really managed to bring out the color in this one, Richard. Good job on the processing.
