River Runs Through It
Posted By: gilbej49, 07-24-2009, 04:02 PM

Pentax K10D
10-17mm Fisheye Lens
Shutter Speed 1/4
ISO 100
Some Post Processing on the water. Even with a filter I couldn't stop down enough to get a slower shutter speed. I had climbed out on a rock with no equipment with me but the camera and tripod. I used a polarizer but should have used a nuetral density or two to get that cotton candy effect on the water. However I think it came out alright. What do you all think?

Is that a bend in the river like that or were you using a fisheye? Either way great shot. I think the water looks a tad bit overdone imho, but overall very nice picture.

The cotton candy effect is overused in many cases and can easily be overdone, especially on shoreline shots where the water ebbs and flows and creates a misty effect. Fine, if that is what you want. In the past nature phtographers tried to strike a happy medium just like yours, so that the image would appear more natural. It is really a function of low light levels in the canopy. Good shot BTW.

The term, "what a rush" jumped into my mind when I saw this picture. Dynamic is the also a good word for the image. Great job.

I think a desk frame is in order for this one.

The stream formed a u-turn and I am setting in the middle of the turn and I was using a fisheye. Thanks for the comments.
