About the Image(s)

This was shot in August of this year during a brief trip to Glacier NP with my daughter. This was photographed during a very cloudy day because of weather and smoke. The image mostly required burning of some bright rocks and a removal of a rock. The raw edit mostly dealt with clarity, structure, contrast and highlights in Capture One.

Very nice perspective and crop. You have a good flow of details in the water, even though it is a slow shutter. Something to think about next time is where the viewer's feet would be - in other words, standing on water? Some foreground would help with that. Were you in the water when taking this shot?   Posted: 11/05/2019 16:50:53

I was standing off to the side and the area was white rock.. not very interesting.   Posted: 11/07/2019 16:40:59

I would prefer to see the white rock in the foreground than to feel like I am standing in the water when I view the photo.   Posted: 11/07/2019 17:13:47

The slow shutter speed is great. You really captured the cotton candy effect of the flowing water. The leading lines walk me through the picture.   Posted: 11/07/2019 11:08:58

Oh, let me stand in the water!

Nice use of shutter speed. I might crop a little more off the right, like those two rocks. It might give a stronger leading line to me.   Posted: 11/11/2019 13:45:30

The appearance of it being taken whilst standing in the water does not bother me, and I feel that if there was a white rock in the foreground it would create a major distraction away from the diagonal flow of the water. To me your shutter sped is appropriate creating a smoothness in the water but still retaining detail of movement. The removal of the rock bottom right gets rid of bright area that would be a distraction.   Posted: 11/12/2019 03:02:34
