When the light from the sun passed through the water flowing from the structure, it reflects from different angles that creates mood to the surrounding.

  1. 3 – be more specific: what is the “unique experience”; how does it “embrace nature”; what are the “different perspectives”. Then figure out how to say all this in one sentence, like “the structure gives people the sensation of falling over a cliff by directing views along a path disappearing over the edge”
    3 – again be more specific: what are “different angles” and how does it “create mood”
    5 – good much more specific in relating to the context
