About the Image(s)

I love rainy days, even when I have a lot to do outside. Rainy days are always a great day to process images. I hope you enjoy the beauty in this photo, taken this spring with workshop guests exploring the compositions of Crosby Creek.

I used a long exposure to capture the movement of the water. When photographing around streams, creeks, and waterfalls I use a polarizer to knock down glare on wet rocks and vegetation. The polarizer reveals color and details that otherwise would not be seen because of the shiny surfaces.

I hope you keep cool during the heat of the summer. If you find yourself inside, this may give you time to find treasures in your photo files.

Great shot. Love the water - it cools me (in Florida!)   Posted: 07/03/2024 16:30:28

Very nice composition and color coordination. Maybe a slight reduction in contrast or exposure to the background would be my only suggestion.   Posted: 07/05/2024 15:33:55
