Hells Hollow Falls

"Thanks Clare!!"
Paul Valerio commented on Paul Valerio's photo

Hells Hollow

"Thank you very much Bethe! I liked the placement of the rock but not the rock itself. It reminded me of busted up concrete not River stone. Great to hear from you, hope all is well!!!"
Elizabeth King commented on PM Lewis's photo


"My kind of subject and I really like the image. Nicely done. You could consider cropping a tiny bit off the top - the stuff showing above the roof is kinda distracting."
Elizabeth King commented on Paul Valerio's photo

Hells Hollow

"I like this one for the different angle and the tree roots.  But I'm not as keen on the big rock in the front.  Barring the use of a jackhammer, I don't see a way to get the rock out of the way and keep the roots though.…"
