Great shot, like the depth and the smooth water!! looks like a blue heron, those birds are very easily spooked!! i like the way the water looks, maybe a tiny layer of ice on it? nice shot!!! Nice effect on the water…and a fantastic perspective/viewpoint. sweeeeet! you nailed this man! very melancholic! ganda! Fantastic shot-bird or no bird! Love the lines and the post processing, pov…nice! I like the way you smooth the water. Nice almost symmetry. Oh man, I love this image. Excellent in every respect, great tunnel view and water effect. Looks like that may be a blue heron, they are such lovely creatures in flight, great shot. Excellent picture ! The long exposure is well done, very well done ! Fantastic point-of-view. Love the converging lines. You ended up with a superb capture. Love the smoothness of the water and the greyscale was an excellent choice. sweet shot of the river. love the motion of the water. like the way the light reflects and changes in there too. That’s a fine result. Excellent bold shapes and great contrast between light and dark Wonderful ! Love this image . Super compo , but what I like is that smooth monochrome . Really great work . oh this is cool! nice work. and i knew John would love it. Excellent slow exposure and composition. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
