Love this !!!
But tell us more details...about your f-stop, your shutter speed, et al
Here are the elements which draw my attention...I love the motion of the water with the stationary "sticks". The "sticks" make this happen. Then, you captured just a hint of light reflecting off the log in the middle / left...and that log is in perfect focus!
Nice job.

Yes tell us more. You are making me want to upgrade to mirrorless now. The feeling this picture gives me is fast yet slow. The motion of the water over the sticks in the foreground gives me a feeling of life rushing by. Then my eyes raise up and see the in focus tree standing there stoic and reminding me sometimes you just have to step back. I love this photograph   Posted: 05/03/2021 15:53:12

Sorry for the lack of details. I thought I sent them.

ISO 100
.4 Seconds

With the surf, I usually take a bunch of exposures, varying the exposure and wave timing. You are looking for a nice "happy accident" (as Bob Ross used to say).   Posted: 05/03/2021 16:30:38

Jeff, This is a fantastic image. You have captured the scene perfectly in my opinion. I'm enchanted by the swiftness of the rushing water in the foreground juxtaposed with the serenity of the tree in the middle ground. Maybe because I'm too into PP, if it was my image, I would likely have removed the branch sticking out of the water on the left side. But it's a matter of "chacun à son goût" subjectively speaking. As for Darcy's comment about the camera body type, I'm not sure that EVIL vs DSLR is a factor in superior imaging. I think that it's more about the nut that triggers the shutter....   Posted: 05/04/2021 09:47:02
