Good job on the EC. The contrast of the smooth flow and sharp detail works well. I've found converting to monochrome on tone-mapped images can work really well as it keeps the detail without the distraction of highly saturated colours.

I was away when you posted this amazing shot Martin so would have missed it had it not been for the POTW.

As others have rightly said the composition and tonal range in the image are outstanding. The way you've kept the bright highlights under control is masterful.

Well done and many congatulations Smile

If your mono skills leave a lot to be desired, then I mine are non-starters! I picked this image from your pf to look at more closely before I'd registered the EC + PW - I was attracted by the almost abstract quality of the composition, and I wasn't disappointed. I'm off to have a look around, now (I'm already familiar with your website in the big wide world). I may be some time...
