    Nice picture, but its a little over processed. It doesn't look like a photograph anymore.

    I love the purply-pink colour to the rocks, and the way the river shows up so well. Beautiful.

    At what time of day was the shot taken?

    Thanks. It was taken near mid day, which is when we happened upon this point.

    I think that the purple takes away from the photograph, but i really like the framing.

    I actually think the heavy processing works well, the way it fades off in the distance works with the unrealistic sort of color it has. i like it.

    Thanks for the comments. I won't learn anything otherwise. For a reference point, this is the original, untouched photograph, other than some cropping of the sky.

    Personally, I like it after the PP. Then again, I tend toward the surreal. The purple hue makes it look a little more magical to me.
    But, just playing devil's advocate, the shot might also look interesting with a warming filter applied. Either way, very nice! :)

    This was taken BD (before digital) with a Canon AE-1 and 70-210 lens and 200 ISO Kodak film. I scanned it with a Canoscan 8600F scanner.
