Thanks to all for commenting.

Hermin, thanks for the modified version, I can see that you have lightened it but would you mind providing the details of what you have done. This would be helpful to me and possibly others.

Adrian.

Beautiful tones in this. I found the larger version a little grainier than I had expected.

Wonderful image.

Thanks Den

Thanks Mark

Thanks Paul: I agree with your comment about grain, this is not an excuse but an explanation;
you are looking at a crop of about 18% of the original RAW file.

My reasons for making this statement are two fold.

1. To acknowledge your critique, for which I am grateful.
2. As a reference for my own use and anyone else who may take an interest.

Adrian.

Strong image. Like the dark black of the rocks and the capture of the movement in the water. As Arthur has said, the water moving in different directions helps to make this strong shot

I'm not a fan of "Smokey Water" but the combination of direction and textural changes work for me in this shot. I like it

Some photos just ooze quality, and as the thumbnail loaded you could see that this is just one of those quality shots that stand out.

Great crop from the previous photo, its outstanding.

Where was it taken by the way.

Thank you Nicholas & Alethea.

It was taken on the River Tawe about 200 yds up from the bridge at Glais, Swansea Valley. I'm sure you know where Glais is Alethea, the last part of location is those who do not.

I would like to thank everyone for their comments, modifications and clicks.

There was however an ulterior motive for posting this image, I sincerely hope you dont mind. It was to try and throw some light on the discussions taking place on a forum topic Idea for new EPZ feature you can see my explanation posted about half way down page 4.

Hi Adrian

Superb image, what was the aperture & shutter speed needed to get that lovely blur?

Hi Stuart, here's the info:

ISO100, f/14, 1 sec.
Light was very poor and polarizer used to reduce light further.

Thanks for the comment

Adrian.

A very nice example of a flowing water shot the exposure and contrasts you have captured work well in B&W. What makes this shot work for me is the contradiction in water flow direction. I think it could be improved if the middle-right component had not been cropped off before the water flume had met the main body of water, also, maybe darkening the extreme top-left lighter area.

Thank you , I agree about the right hand crop, I expected this to be picked up earlier and you may have a point about the top left.
