I don't consider this HDR per se. I did process the RAW file twice once for the sky and water, then second for the rock. I used two Cokin graduated ND filters to use a slow shutter speed.


Thanks for the comments. I'll take the 10th place! Love those little stars. Much better than over saturated color ribbon! ;)

How do you go about double processing a RAW file?

I love the feeling of water movement here. The colors are also very pleasing to look at.

Not a huge HDR fan (assuming this is) but I think this is a brilliant shot.

excellent focus and exposure, nice moody color. too much of the soft water in foreground IMO

Nice mood shot, though there is too much rushing water for me. A more rectangular crop with less blurred water would have improved the proportions and accentuated the horizon. Also, this doesn't necessarily say "January" to me, although it's a lovely shot.

This is breathtaking. The slow shutter makes the ocean sort of look like a painting. One of my favorites. (9)

I hope you will put your PP notes...I am very curious how this tonal value is achieved...very pleasing

I love the sense of "moving" waters while the stones remain a tack-sharp sense. :) Nice photo.
