I was fascinated by the pattern the water made in this stream as it went over that little bunch of leaves. Decided to try a long exposure so I propped the camera on a rock *in* the stream. The D200 did not drown :-) I'm very happy with all the cool patterns I got in the image, the diagonal composition following the flow downward, and the smoothness of the motion with a little texture here and there where the water is spraying.

PP - converted from RAW 3x (light, normal, dark), merged with HDR, cropped, burnt bits of rocks and some of the water, increased saturation and contrast, added border, resized, sharpened.

is it possible that the water is slightly over saturated?

Nice composiiton, maybe a bit too blue? The rocks all seem to have a blue cast to them.

Great colour in the water, that doesn't overwhelm the rocks :)

Very interesting, I like how the water flows up and over the leaf.

I like this a lot. You can almost picture the rest of the stream.

If you had a slightly wider field of view you would probably have been able to do a longer shutter and get some "milkiness" from this photo. But I do like that you can see the leaf fighting against the current.
