About the Image(s)

The rapids below the spillway at Keller Lake Park in my county has benefitted from recent September rains and shorter days and brisk nights with a foliage change. The day was overcast and the rapids is shaded. I used a graduated ND filter for this. Tech info: ISO 100, 8 sec., manual exposure, pattern metering, 52 mm. Opened image in Photoshop for standard adjustments, then to LR for a few more, then into Topaz Studio a couple of presets to bring out the rocks and moss. I took out several twigs and sticks but left a few.

I like this image Trey it gives me a feeling of peace. The PP has lifted the image.   Posted: 10/06/2020 03:21:47

This is a strong image Trey. Your construction of this one is great, with us just seeing what needs to be seen. But I am in two minds. I like your processing and the way you have brought the rocks and their details out, but I prefer the "cleanliness" of the water in the original. I know what can get an oxide color happening, but personally I prefer the whiter water. That's just my personal opinion.   Posted: 10/06/2020 22:23:11

Yeah, but the water here is tinged, farm country. I do prefer the white too, so I will backtrack and see if I can "get the stain out".   Posted: 10/08/2020 18:02:18

Trey. I love this image. I simply wanted to step into this scene. I do prefer the whiter water of the original, but I am familiar with water that is more the color of your edited image - in Montana years ago. Very nice job.

Great photo Trey. I like the foreground rocks and the flow of the water, especially in the top part of the image.   Posted: 10/13/2020 20:50:26

Nice image. I've always wanted to try this but couldn't justify the ND filter. Which did you use?   Posted: 10/15/2020 12:31:05

I bought a screw-on Pro Master variable ND filter 1.3-8 stops $180 https://amzn.to/2T46Ki9   Posted: 10/15/2020 13:18:46
