Wonderful milky effect of the water and the rocks are perfectly exposed

challenge met. beautiful contrast between the flowing water and the still and sharply focused rocks. nice contrast in tones, too. the water has a nice flow through the photo, and the frame works well, too. i wouldn't change a thing. my top 3 this week! :)

Probably the nicest running water photo in this challenge (although there may be more I haven't seen yet!). You hit exactly the right settings to get that water looking glassy and spectacular, with the rocks beautifully sharp and perfectly exposed. I think the border is a little bit too thick, but this is going to be a 10 from me.

Good composition. Colours, focus and border - all well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/18/2002 06:16:01 PM
Wow! This is quite possibly the best and most interesting composition I've seen for a 'creek shot.' I love how it starts in upper right and runs out of the lower left corner! Motion blur on the water is great too. Fabulous work :) -12

Very well done! I always enjoy looking at (and using) this technique.

You know I like it :-) Beautiful work!

Nice motion. I would like to see it a little lighter, I suppose that was difficult to do with your long exposure. I just think quite a lot of detail has been lost in the rocks which assist in making the "water" picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

"WOW'! You sure have the "wow" to this one. Beautiful colors with nice sharp focus, showing the texture of the rocks beautifully. And the water appears to be rushing with such a magnitude of force. This goes in my favorites for sure. A 10 from me. PTL

Always love these blurred, running water shots. Nice setting. No matter how many times I see this effect, it always wows me. 9 Swash

Wonderful shot! The colors and contrast are very good and the feel of rushing water really comes through with your slow shutter speed. You couldn't have done a better job with the composition either.

Stunning! You did a great job on this!

I could say that the only reason that this water looks like this is because of human intervention. NO WHERE will you find water that naturally occurs like this. However, I supose if I were to be THAT picky, then I'd have to complain about all the shots cause they were taken with a camera. So, I wont be. That being said, I think it's a nice shot, but I still don't prefer the water to look like this. It's technically well done, but not my cup of tea. Definately a nature shot for sure. I think that the lighting is good, and the angle and framing/cropping are good as well. Overall it's a nice shot. Good luck in the challenge.

Very nice shot. It shows great clarity of the rocks, great lighting and the water looks soooo soft. I bet it is soooo cold.

Very nice exposure. Very clear. Nice colours.

Nice shot! The only thing I would change is the border... it's a tad too thick I think.
