Old Far Mill River in Autumn by Norm Solomon

November 2019 - Old Far Mill River in Autumn

About the Image(s)

Nikon D850, 24-120 @ 46mm. .4 sec F11, ISO 64

This is an image of a river rapids near our home. I took this shot in late afternoon to avoid getting specular highlights from the riverbed rocks. I cropped the original image to focus attention on the river and the surrounding foliage and trees. I shot at a slow shutter speed (on a tripod) to get some of the `silky’ look in the river rapids.
I welcome any comments or suggestions.

You are so fortunate to have this view near your home. I liked the angle, colors and the slow shutter speed you chose to make the water appear silky as it flowed. Normally, I like to see water being shot with a fast shutter speed to see water rapidly and noisily flowing down. However, your treatment lets me in to this secret quiet place. Would not change a thing.   Posted: 11/09/2019 13:05:52

Wonderful shot. I especially like the framing by the trio of trees--I think that is a brilliant touch. Can you show the original for us to see what you decided to crop from?
There are a number of waterfall shots this month throughout the digital dialogs. Most everyone avoids mid-day sun. See this month Larry Treadwell in Group 67, Bob Legg in Group 29, and Tom Johnson in Group 28.
