Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Long Exposure (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon EOS-10D
Lens: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
Location: Gullfoss, Iceland
Date: Jul 30, 2005
Aperture: f/22
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1 second
Date Uploaded: Jul 30, 2005

A tiny portion of Gullfoss (the Golden waterfall) in SW-Iceland.

I photographed this one with a two stop ND-filter and Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 at the 70mm setting.

Editing: A lot! I can't really remember it all though I do remember that this is not a crop and that I used USM, hue/sat, colorize, gradient map, levels, curves, Shadow/highlight, clone brush, healing brush and spot-healing brush, the exposure tool and smart sharpening. I also changed the blending mode on few of the layers to color, color burn, luminosity, and screen.

eirasi, no I'm not at all disappointed with ending up in the 4th place yet again. I just find it a bit funny, that's all! :)

Sure you are a little bit dissapointed one place from ribbon again!

But abotu the photo: Cool how many different photos one can make of this waterfall!

Edit: Translation from Icelandic to English since it is supposed to be international!

I don´t know whether to say congratulations or not! Fantastic shot Andri! Rosalegt að lenda í 4ða aftur. Það hefði verið gaman að sjá 3 víkinga í borðahamstrinu :)

LOL, yet another 4th place!
It's a bit funny that I've entered into 4 challenges on DPC in July and in 3 of those I ended up in the 4th place. In addition, I've also entered into 3 challenges in July at another photography contest site here in Iceland and I also ended up in the 4th place in all of those challenges. So in all, I've entered into 7 challenges in July and the 4th place was mine in all but one of those instances. Guess I can't complain, can I? ;-)

Anyway, thanks for all the comments folks!
I especially want to answer skief who complaimed about grainyness in the top-left corner. This isn't really noise/grain but tiny water droplets coming from the waterfall.
As for the title, which JohannesFrank commented on, it refers to the fact that this is a one second exposure.

I'd like to thank Larus for inviting me on this trip to Gullfoss (well, I bought him a sandwich instead) and for lending me the ND-filter.

If anyone is curious, this waterfall, Gullfoss, is one the most well known tourist attractions in Iceland. Pictures of it can be easily found on the Internet.

I find this to be striking. The power of the water is evident and the composition is good.

The best water shot of this challenge. Exposure not too long or too short. GReat composition and lighting is really good.

7 - Beautiful flowing black and white. I don't like the graininess as it is just on the top left, and is not even throughout the b&w conversion. however, I still think this is a good interpretation of the challenge.

I like the B&W conversion. I find it adds crispness to the photo that might not have been there with a color version. I like the softness of the water as well. well done and good luck in this challenge. <8>
