Gave this one a 9 Neil. Wonderful processing and the golden tones at the left are quite Tolkienesque.

There is so much competition in this challenge! Stunning. Leaves me breathless. Sometimes long shutter water images are blurred so smooth and pillowy, looseing much of the motion detail and threatening to put me to sleep... Not this one. You captured the vibrant motion of this water while not destroying the real power of it. And don't get me started on the colors! Makes me want to jump in and ride down into the light. Very nice indeed.

What a lovely autumn setting! The underexposed woods leading to a bright clearing in the end, the still rocks facing the might of raging waters and turning them around, the dead leaves with the last gasp of colors laying on the black surface - lots of interesting elements that add up. I wish the flowing water was exposed for either a longer or a shorter duration. Right now, I believe it's in between, neither smooth enough nor raging enough.

Perfectly chosen shutter speed for the nice effect in the water. Love the warm tones in upper left. Nicely captured.

The colours are great but itís the blurred motion of the flowing water that really makes this great shot!

Oh I could just get lost in this. Beautiful how my eye just follows the water backwards to the beginning in the upper left. Stunning colors. Fall is so beautiful.
