    This one was captured at the Seven Sisters Generating Station, Seven Sisters Falls, Manitoba.

    Thanks for looking...

    Very nice! ;)

    Simple, clean and neat composition.

    But I believe this photo will be even better if you use a longer shutter speed to create the "silky" effect of the rushing water. Guess you forgot your tripod? :wink:

    Perfect exposure. Not the least bit of foam blown. (Other than that it is foaming and blowing all by itself ;)). Good one!!!

    Great! :thumbup:

    but I strongly disagree with the silky suggestion. That would take away from the 'raw force' the water is now conveying. (and I see too many long shutter speed water pics anyway)

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I really like his image, even if it's anything but sexy.

    True enough, I left the tripod in my car, but intentionally! It never even occurred to me to shoot this place at a lower speed as I was there to capture the violent waters. I took one single shot, verified that the exposure was correct, and went about my business. I guess I now have the perfect excuse to go back :)

    I think it might be a bit better with a little adjustment to the levels. The "whites" are all showing as a slightly sepia toned grey (if that even makes sense).

    It does make sense, considering that I intentionally tweaked the black & white a tiny bit. A secret ingredient, if you will. You, sir, are spot on.

    Thanks again everybody for taking the time to look at this photo.
