Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Leading Lines IV (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 II/III USM
Location: Heidmork, Iceland
Date: Feb 13, 2008
Aperture: f/7.1
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/400
Galleries: Nature, Water
Date Uploaded: Feb 18, 2008

This beautiful vortex can often be found in a small stream in Heidmork. The weather was dull and gray this day so the blue color comes from a Hue/Sat/Light-layer. Contrast was enhanced with a Levels-layer. Crop, resize, frame and gentle USM.

Excellent shot. I like the fact that you used spirals for lines. They all lead to your black hole. Nice interpretation of the challenge!

Very cool picture. The colors are really subtle and well shot. Also the lines really draw my eyes in

I find the reflections on the water to be distracting. My eye keeps jumping from the hole to the area in the lower left

I doesn't have one straight leading line to it but I like how it swirls.

I like your DOF used in this shot, would have liked the actual hole to be shifted to the right just a tad more to make better use of the rule of thirds. Nice lighting overall.
