Brilliant picture. Water can look precicely that way. Never seen it on a photo before. It is possible to carefully observe water surfaces and reflect that knowledge in painting and photography

So beautiful and fresh

Thanks, Reanimator and Torgny, for viewing and giving comments.

#1 had sunshine on the running water as I was shooting it, so the fleeting moment of light was captured as I used a pretty slow shutter speed. In the shot, I used 1/2 of a second. It took the whole plane that was framed to be even in lighting; otherwise, there would have been over-exposure for the portion lit up. The color in

#3 was different from the scene's which was pretty dull. The long exposure has added more hue to the shot and the tiny scratches of light on the water surface was the result of the moment of flowing water. If I had tried taking #3 a second time, the result would have been totally different because the light sieving throught the foliage was uncontrollable.

In #2, the shutter speed was very slow too, so turning the water caming ashore into a silky carpet. The light of the shot waskinda of backlit, so little three dimensional effect could be made.

Very eye pleasingpicturesin which you captured the essence of 'flow' of water as everthing flows...Shoud you pop up the foreground in #3 a little, especially the rocks,it couldhave even a greater impact, imo!

Yes, Bahidir, if it had been a little bit more, the shot would have been more balanced in the bottom. Thanks for viewing and commenting.
