A good picture of a nice place. There is a monument which has writing carved into it. The first line says, "Clark", the second says, "Colonial" and the third says, "State of Iowa". Some friends sit on the nearby bench talking. In the distance, you can see a long river and a small green forest.

Thank you.

A very good picture and place. Something written(. first line...and Clark..second line the colonial..and third line.. of Iowa..) on the wall and some friends sitting on the benches and talking, far way.... a long river and a small green forest.

 

Just the beginning of a poem or a romance? Well done

I don't know  what  it is, just a picture.  Thank you.

This is a very good picture and place. Something is written on the wall (. the first line says ... "Lewis and Clark," .. the second line says "the colonial," .. and the third line .. says "State of Iowa" ..) and some friends are sitting on the benches and talking. In the distance, far way.... there is a long river and [there are also many trees growing in the distance/a small green forest].

Good. If I were you, I would start by saying "This is a very good picture", not just "A very good picture and plave". You need the verb "is" in "Something is written". Before your parentheses, you should say "on the wall". It doesn't make sense to mention what is on the wall without saying where it is written first. Also, you need a space before the opening parentesis. The first period right inside the opening parenthesis is not needed. You need the definite article "the" in front of "first line", "second line" and "second line". After "the first line", "the second line", and "the third line", you need to put "says" and then quotation marks around "Lewis and Clark". "the colonial" and "State of Iowa". Lewis and Clark were very famous American explorers and they traveled through the state of Iowa during the colonial days of the USA. I searched all over the Internet and National Geographic trying to find the photograph in this exercise or another photograph of the wall, but I was not successful. I wouldn't use the ellipses that you have after in there, though (../...). At any rate, once you have three dots and only two the other times, which is inconsistent. An ellpisis is usually at least three dots in length, not just two. Also, it is widely thought and mostly agreed that many people either overuse ellipses or do not know how to use them correctly. You can get by fine without them. You need the verb "are" in "some friends are sitting". I would end the sentence after "talking". "In the distance" should start the next sentence, not "far away". "In the distance" is a prepositional pronoun, which means it starts with a preposition (In), and is followed by a noun (the distance). Prepositional phrases require a comma after them. You want to say "there is" a long river. I would say "and there are also many trees growing in the distance", not "a small, green forest", because I feel like there are too few trees in the picture to qualify as being a forest, but I leave that to you.
