Water over rocks.

Curves, burned the foamy bit, photo filter to make it more sepia, heavy sharpen to make the water look like hair or fabric.

Awesome photo. Going to try something like this. I had no idea by over sharpening a heavy current or water flow I could achieve this beautiful effect. So glad I ran across this.

That's quite impressive, thanks for sharing details of the post-processing, very interesting.

Beautiful image! Subtle on color and captures motion nicely!

Nice work! For the record, I don't think it looks anything like my pictures, very different style. Your own. :)

Yeah, I can see the coarse hair, and can appreciate (in hindsight) your stated effort of removing the motion rather than embracing it.

I thought so. Sorry I only gave you a 7, because this looks better 3rd time around - I feel fur and I see an eye.

Banned for pathetic fallacy.

Oh.

Such a beautiful image - wonderful title. Congrats on your excellent score!

I'm glad you shared the PP. I was wondering how you made the water look so much like hair. This was one of my higher scores. I'm very glad it was appreciated by so many voters. You have definitely make progress in your efforts to educate the DPC public.

way to screw up your DPL2 average...

Got a 7 from me. You're not going soft on us and starting to enter eye candy are you?

Love this. Love the texture with the great colors in there. This one I could see on my wall, if I had a space of course. Good luck.

Ok, I think I know where this image came from. 21_F.gif ursula I guess. Technique is amazing, composition and colors are at a Master level. It's not easy and it's not for all controling art at this level. God bless you for the pleasure emanating from your work. IMO when God give us the hability to do things in a superior way, we should return Him with something really special. It's not the first time that I felt this, and once again it came to my mind. I wish this amazing artist would chose other subjects than just beauty. 9

6 - I think you won't like this comment, but it seems, visually, like it needs a nudge up on the right to straighten, even for a visual balance. However then the seemingly 'chopped' right hand side would be further accentuated. I especially like the flick up of water down center right.

Strangely, I am curious how this would look rotated.

Very pretty. A rushing stream with the evocation of animal fur. Clever and pleasing. I just don't know if it's fine art, but I'm certain it would be very popular. Something doesn't say "you", though, and that disturbs me.

ursulaesque :)

Beautifully rendered. I have a suspicion this might be by Ursula as it reminds me of her recent Yin&Yang image.

I love the sense of motion.

Maybe you'll double dip the front page Ursula! :)

beautiful spot that you've discovered...stunning

This is either Ursula or someone trying to copy her style. WIth that in mind, I don't like it as much as some of her others. It's less intimate by being less cropped. 6
