Lovely I like the elegance of the lower gate a lot!   

For the upper gate---how about just a couple of inches of a fish rising up with a golf ball in it's mouth at the base? Using the top of the bottom bar as the surface of the water...

Could a golf ball be worked into the gate latch handle?  They are easy to drill into and lag bolt if you don't use a liquid center one.

I really think the mixed metals makes the pieces "pop" visually.

The lower gate emphasizes the "delicacy" of steel vs cast iron ornamentation.
