Went out to Great Falls on an overcast morning. It was the only place I could think of nearby where a landscape I wanted to shoot was a relatively short walk from the parking lot. It took me a good 20 minutes to hobble there when it normally takes me about 2 to walk. Really want this broken ankle to heal already!! But wasn't about to let my TPL teammates down so it had to be done :-)

Thanks to [user]mrchhas[/user] for processing suggestions that really improved this IMO. Teams are wonderful things!

PP - converted from RAW, straightened, cropped, Nik Silver Efex high structure smooth, Nik Color Efex tonal contrast, slight vignette on sky, lightened middle of sky, lightened a few trees on the right, healed numerous dust spots (time to clean the sensor again!), resized, Nik Sharpen, Nik Color Efex glamour glow.

THIS is... fabulous! Well done!

My pick for the Yellow Ribbon, but I suspect that everyone won't agree with me.

I think you went shooting with someone else - I pefer your shutter speed. I can still feel the power but the movement in the water adds a special something. I do feel it is a bit bright though especially in the shadows.

Very nicely done. The exposure time is perfect for creating that chaos effect.
