Water Canvas #2

By tigerminx
Second from Royal Natal, a slightly different composition, but with the sunlight in full force... Not quite the same treatment as the other image.

Thanks for looking.

Good landscape. The foreground of the river is excellent and I like the way the layers take the eye into the far background.

Usually in a shot like this I look at eh water first and then updard. But for sume reason I started at the sky, which is incredible, and worked my way down. Nicely exposed throughout the frame.

The word "stunning" gets banded around on here all the time as a throw away remark but in my opinion this really is. Brilliantly executed, beautiful lighting and top notch quality.

Duh, let me correct a few typos and rephraise! I usually look at the water and work my way up. But the clouds here are so awesome that I looked up first, then down to the water. And the water is well exposed too.

Stunning Bruce. One of the best shots I've seen on here in a long long time. Spotted this from my favourite photographers view. Not at all surprised with the EC.....actually would have been a crime if it didn't get one. SUPERB!
