this was just a grab shot taken a couple of hundred yards downstream from where i shot "Stream of Consciousness". i liked the ruddy hue of the rocks and the riverbed. i think this little stream is going to afford me a ton of photo ops... 5D, 24-135 @ 135mm, 5 sec @ f/11 with polarizer.

Lucky you, having this little stream to "play" with. I thought the rocks were fish heads when I first scrolled down the page. Nice colours and soft water movement

I like it. Its curious how you got a smoky texture of the flowing water.

Ordo, the "smoky" effect is mainly caused by tiny air bubbles in the water. the long shutter speed makes them blur together and appear as a slight grayish or "smoky" color...

squirl - this is a BEAUTIFUL shot! The colors and water texture are exquisite. Either a polarizer or ND filter is next on my shopping list to try for shots like these. Well done.

thanks, Saly. of the two, if you don't have either, i'd recommend getting the polarizer first. it's much more useful for a wider range of conditions. of course, it's good to have both, but a polarizer is one of those "must have" items every photographer should keep in their bag...

Really excellent shot - sensational colour and movement. Thanks for the tip on the lenses.

Thanks squirl, I think you are right, there are lots more uses for a CP filter. I'll put that on the top of my list
