Absolutely love it!. A 4 minute exposure, how did you manage that without blowing everything out? Did you blend a couple of exposures? Did you have any filters on? Paul

Thanks guys.

Paul, 10 stop ND filter and also a 1 stop ND grad. No blending at all needed, just took a couple of exposures to get the best result, but it's a single shot. A big thanks for your award too!!! Smile

Catch you later,
Paul

Not normally a soft water fan, but this really is something special because of the contrast between the peaty brown and almost Caribbean blue. I like the way the stream is framed by that well-lit overhanging branch.

Slightly unearthly colour, but it works with the softness which, lets face it, is also a bit unearthly. Borders on the sureal, but works, I think.
