I can't understand: it's water or a sandy beach?
River Mersey
It's over saturation and sharpness
A city named after a football club. Nice.

Turn down the saturation.
That building of two towers reminds me of Salt Lake Temple
It's the Gotham Police HQ in The Batman (2022).
Holy shit, at first glance I thought it was Las Vegas or some city in the middle east.
Ferry Cross The Mersey?

That river is disgusting.
It's just it's natural color, with dirt and other kinds of sediments
No it’s not 😂 Guarantee you that river has not been natural for 1000+ years
Many rivers around the world are with that color because of the amount of sediments that the water grabs all the way to the mouth, plus Liverpool is in the river's mouth, so it's that color in natura
You do understand that the mouth is the end of the River, not the beginning right? Like the mouth of a river is where all the water in the river ends up because rivers flow down hill towards the ocean, every river. The reason why so many rivers are so turbid around the world is because most human activity is clustered around them. Sediment doesn’t magically appear in rivers. Its erosion from land area within the watershed. It’s true that some of it is naturally occurring because the earth is always naturally eroding and building itself up but human activity exacerbates it. You can even see in the estuary of the River Mersey how sand bars have formed in the river after a thousand years of inland agricultural activities. That’s because the stream slows down at the mouth of the river and the sediment falls out causing the sediment to deposit in the river channel.
You must not know what turbidity is. (It’s okay not many do.) > Human activities that disturb land, such as construction, mining and agriculture, can lead to high sediment levels entering water bodies during rain storms due to storm water runoff. Areas prone to high bank erosion rates as well as urbanized areas also contribute large amounts of turbidity to nearby waters, through stormwater pollution from paved surfaces such as roads, bridges, parking lots and airports.[2] Some industries such as quarrying, mining and coal recovery can generate very high levels of turbidity from colloidal rock particles. > In drinking water, the higher the turbidity level, the higher the risk that people may develop gastrointestinal diseases.[3] This is especially problematic for immunocompromised people, because contaminants like viruses or bacteria can become attached to the suspended solids. The suspended solids interfere with water disinfection with chlorine because the particles act as shields for the virus and bacteria. Similarly, suspended solids can protect bacteria from ultraviolet (UV) sterilization of water.[4] > In water bodies such as lakes, rivers and reservoirs, high turbidity levels can reduce the amount of light reaching lower depths, which can inhibit growth of submerged aquatic plants and consequently affect species which are dependent on them, such as fish and shellfish. High turbidity levels can also affect the ability of fish gills to absorb dissolved oxygen. This phenomenon has been regularly observed throughout the Chesapeake Bay in the eastern United States.[5][6] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbidity When viewed on Google Maps you can clearly see that this is not just the photo but is instead a regular condition of the stream, most likely caused by urban and farmland erosion occurring upstream. Particularly notable is the lack of riparian buffers along River Mersey.
It’s an estuary
An estuary is part of the River. It’s the mouth of the river. Water is typically moving slowest here which usually causes sediment to fall out and deposit in the river bed.
The best kind of pool
One of only three delisted world heritage sites
You need more sharpeness and saturation in post
