With a visit to the Otter Slough Conservation Area, in Dexter, Missouri..I came up with this neat look..and a Personal Best..after a few years...

People were discussing in a thread about the ability to compete with the new rule set...I think I competed in this Challenge..under just Advanced..(probably rule set 2003)...maybe I didn't get a 7...but it was a top ten image...I never think of ribbons...just improving and entering for the fun of it..it is nice to have 720x720...200kb...it helps..so you don't need all the bells and whistles.

Advanced Editing...ONE Exposure...No HDR...No Tone mapping...JUST Advanced in the sense of selective coloring and the use of light and dark.

For those wondering...

Explaining the Title:
Challenge: Rivers & Streams
Type: Member Challenge
Rules: Advanced Editing VI ("Time Lapse")
Description: From tiny creeks to lazy rivers to thundering rapids and falls, take your best shot of a river, stream, or "SIMILAR" this week.

This was the only SIMILAR I could Find...

A Grateful "Thank You" to Everyone...

Ohmygoodness! This is absolutely breathtaking. It seems I'm saying that alot with these top 10 photos, but it's true. I've never seen such a beautiful collection of landscape photos.

Congratulations on 8th place!
