Post-Processing: Cropped; Adjusted levels; Adjusted Auto-tones in Elements; Cloned out a fence to the left; Brightened; Increased black in Levels; Denoised; Sharpened; Resized       Extra Info: This was a large empty lot that was covered in trash for years. One day I was surprised to find the grounds cleaned up but covered with these odd rock stackings. I didn't know what the significance of these rocks were, some sort of an occult? After much research I found out that a local businessman apparently got tired of seeing the mess and volunteered to clean it up. After all the trash was cleared, he gathered the abundant rocks and piled them up as decorations. He keeps moving them around, as well as decorating them seasonally. During Christmas, these rocks wear Santa's caps.

    What a wonderful improvement over a pile of rubble. You've done a beautiful job of capturing the serenity of the scene.

    Nice view. Good sharpness and beautiful colors. Making something like this is too art, I think.

    Stacked rocks seem to be getting everywhere - they appear to have taken over from 'love locks' !

Of course in this setting, they look great, and you've chosen a good on-theme scene.

    Beautifully composed tranquil scene. Nice to see people improving their environment. In my TT's.
