I don't think the outdoor temps here have hit freezing in about 2 weeks. Hardly any snow here - unlike those poor souls in upstate New York - but it's been chilly enough, and sub-zero wind chills, to boot.

Anyhoo, I went shootin' for a couple of hours today, and in this instance laid down on a nice sheet of ice to capture this pic. Comments and criticism are absolutely welcome, of course.

I hope you didn't get a chill lyin' on that ice!:-)I like the concept of this pic, but I see a few problems, the first one being that the white water at top left looks blown out. Also, theshadows under the rocks are totally black with no visible detail, so I suspect your exposure was a bit off. I find pics of running water difficult, especially if the lighting is less than ideal. Do you have the EXIF for this shot?

The blurry object in the left foreground is a little distracting, too.That's it - I'm doneripping your work to shreds!:bye:

Very nice! Slow shutter speeds do justify to a flowing water such as this...with a tripod and a ND filter you can try much slower shutter speeds without over exposure andstunning results!

I like it, and my hat is off to you for laying on that cold ice to get the shot!

Toshi, I appreciate the critique - how else can I learn and improve?

The white water at the top left is actually snow and ice, which did pretty much get blown out anyway.

There actually is a tiny detail to be had under the rocks, I pretty much destroyed that while attempting to get a little "punchier" look. I believe I can restore those specific areas. But yes, those areas are under-exposed. Photo was taken ISO 100, Shutter 1/8, Aperture 5. Basically, I set my camera to EV -1/3 and snapped away.

Yeah, the blurry rock in the foreground bugs me, too. I guess I should clone that out.

Again, thanks for the critique. It is much appreciated.

bahadir, Bob, I very much appreciate you gents taking the time to look at my photo and comment. This is the 1st time I've tried this type of shot, and I'm still working out the kinks... here is a "corrected" version:
