Wow, this image really attracted my attention when i first saw it. The contrasts of green and brown are so strong and the fact that the sun is seeping through really gives an illuminating feel and really draws you're attention to it.

Now, i don't know where you live and if this spot was easy for you to find, but i love it when someone really goes out their way to find that special area to take pictures of, and i love this because its in a forest which looks so, un-touched and just, wow!

The composition is really amazing, there is a good quanity of the water and the trees in the background with the focus obviously on the water, i think 1 second shutterspeed is exactly what i would have used, really good, and i really do love the composition. Iso could posibly be slightly higher, but never the less, i love it, very original. And leaves an amazing impact, i really love this, Congratulations :boogie:

Might I borrow this image, as well, for a photomanipulation? The images as backgrounds will not change from the original, and of course I will link you to the finished product with credit :)

I love it :) It is beautiful in color, and fascinating to look at the water over the stones. :D

hey can you actually let me know how you did this. i have a nikon d3000. i know you need a tripod but whats the significance of using the raw format besides from makings the picture gigantic? and what are the 2 exposures, could you just keep it on bulb or over a second shutter speeds?
sorry for being such a noob
--i really think the pic is gorgeous btw :)

No problem :D

Well, I made two photos with different shutter times.
The time depends on your light situation of course.
Let's say I made one with 1 second and one with 1/3 second.
Then you'll have the water too bright and without structure in the one with 1 second,
so I layer them in PS to use the 1/3s shot for the water and the other shot for the rest to have a well lit image.

RAW format is the original file out of the cam without any edits made by the camera's internal software.
For example sharpening, contrast, colors.
RAW/NEF is not compressed too and so has full quality but a larger size too.
It gives you more possibilities when it comes to edit the picture, cause you can set some preferences,
like white balance or exposure after the shot in your program like PS or CaptureNX.

Hope this helps you.
Greets, Marco
