Two views of the same object often work better photographically. In this case my objective was to show an angled view of an old reservoir dam, as well as how “silky and clear” the water looked coming over one of the dam’s spillways. Had the second photo been shown by itself, you perhaps would not have known what it was a part of; e.g the reservoir dam. Photos should be able to tell a story, as a record of what you saw around you at any given moment in time. No one else but you saw that scene when you did, and it’s important to convey that vision to others. In this case, it took both photos to do that.
