I love the scene and the time exposure making the water flow really show while the leaves are sharp as a tack.

Excellent job capturing the movement of the water, and your composition leads my right through the photo. I like the deep saturated colors yet the water remains mostly white.

The water looks quite surreal in this shot. Fascinating.

I could be wrong, but this looks like Spencer Gorge in Dundas ON... Though, I am sure there are many such rivers that look alike. Nice shot.

Colors feel a bit over saturated.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 12:59:51 PM
great use of exposure control for the water, cropping up just a little from the bottom might improve, by removing the slightly overexposed area, jmo

I like the contrast between the silvery water and the juicy green/reddish leaves.

Makes me want to be there. The trees are a little blurred, but I bet there was a touch of wind that day.

The greens pop in such a nice way in this and the water seems like it's from a fantasy story.

The water looks like silk. So smooth and fluent. Color is great and like how the fallen leaves in the back give the pic balance for me. Nicely done.

Like how the water turns to milk with the shutter effect.

I think you've overdone the processing a little on this. The rocks look like they have been pasted into the scene.
