    That is interesting, but why does the water look so feathery? Did you smudge it in photoshop? It looks sort of unnatural. But I like the composition and the overall tone.

    Feathery?
    I did try and get the milky effect, i guess the reason it is so thin was there wasnt much water running over the rocks, and maybe a little spray off from it hitting the rocks,
    Other than resize, this is straight out of the camera

    (15 seconds at F9, iso100, polarizer)

    I like it. Some dark spots in the shadows where I would like to see some more details but a good capture.

    Did you get any shots without this tight of a crop? Just curious as to what it would look like from more of a distance.

    Yeah, I think it works well as is too... some experimenting with hue & saturation might be interesting.

    Good camera work! The shot seems to be heavy in the cyan. One way to approach that is in Photoshop; Covert to cmyk View channels Adjustment levels. Adjust each channel separately.

    Since you have pshop why not use it?

    The tones of this image was one of the things i liked about it,

    As to why i dont use photoshop- im one of the believers that photoshop (after a certain extent) kinda takes away from photography, i prefer to do thnigs right when i take the photo, and use photoshop as a little tool for slight corrections,

    Very dreamy, calming and relaxing impression. The only thing that "ruins" (takes away from) the feel is the harsh lighting on the left of the photo a continuous blueish overcast throughout would even out the feel.

    Cool. I think everyone prefers to do things right when they take the photo. I think of pshop as a digital darkroom and I enjoy the control it gives me. Like most things in photography the pshop debate has no correct answer.

    Tones are good, but I think you can improve on them. Fill us in on the details of the print and film etc.
