Close up of fast running river at sunset. Colour saturated and contrast boosted.


Quite the surprise to get second with 6.3. As an accountant abstract is not usually a strength.

Thanks for all the great feedback!

This is fantastic, looks like a stencil drawing. Well deserving of a ribbon

Hey, congrats for the ribbon! Can you put the shutter speed, aperture and ISO used for this shot? It's ok if you don't, but i really wish to know!
Thank you!

It's interesting you should say that because even the primordial chaos is governed by the universal laws. So there is an order here, beneath all the disorder. It's a very comforting thought. Religion for the non-credulous. 9.

The Great Unknown!! (I'll be looking for the explanation later!) Very nice!

Very pretty, very nice. Like the the colors aren't over saturated. Their softness works for this shot.

nice abstract motion.

Nice subtle colours and great movement! I would have cropped at the strong dark horizontal line towards the top, it doesn't necesarily distract, I just think the bottom half can stand well on its own.

Eh - I get it, flowing water, tweak colors, but - well, hey - it's not abstract. It's just flowing water.
