The long exposure really 'makes' the image... How long did you expose it, by the way?

Can't remember exactly but I think it was 4 or 5 seconds, maybe a bit longer.

That long? Suppose you used a tripod? Or have an android implant to keep your hands steady? :D

The waves get all plastic-like from it. Great work.

I love the way the water looks after leaving the shutter open for a while! ^.^ Very pretty! the colours in the sky are perfect the way they contrast with the orange/red stone!

BTW, your wider angle framing of this shot is notably better than the other ones taken on the day your camera went fishing.

what, you mean it's better than the shot my camera randomly fired as it plunged into the depths? I should hope so!

Nope. Both your friend and his student posted images from this "secret" spot. However, your slightly wider perspective creates a better sense of depth.

Oh my, I have not read the blog yet but this is breathtaking even without what is sure to be the usual great story. The leading line smeared out to just the right amount; the "selective focus" which is probably a side effect of the closer water moving fast; the smeared moving clouds above the horizon. Wonderful all around.

You know you have developed your own personal style when your watchers know when a shot is yours before they even see your name. :D
Well done, as always! :w00t:
