Did you make this beautiful capture in Pamukkale, Turkey, or in Yellowstone National Park at Jupiter Terrace, Fountain Geyser Pool, (USA)?

Both places are known for their travertine pools, which are made from calcium carbonate deposits and created from the natural warm springs.

Your capture has wonderful composition, and the color is perfectly lovely. Congratulations on your second place winner!

Congrats Matthew! Amazing color, great wide angle, vertical comp., silky water...gorgeous! Well done!

Quick questions: Did you use Tv mode? and How did you get those amazing colors? Post-proscessing? Did you use a Polarizer as well?

Hope you don't mind me asking...I'm still learning...Thanks, ~ Deb :)
