Took this mid-morning shot on the way to Spruce Knob recently. The light reflecting from the trees seemed to turn the surface of the water green.

You have gotten quite a reponse with this photo, Gary. And no wonder - I love the overall green with the splash of pink, the silky water and the composition. Well done.

That is really lovely. I assume you used a tripod, but I wonder what lens you used.

Thanks Terry - I think it's impossible to see them all. Every time the finalists come out I see all kinds of shots I missed during the month! I love shooting running water. I used both a neutral density filter and a polarizing filter on this one, plus it was actually pretty dimly lit because the forest canopy was so thick, but the slow shutter speed gives it a lot of light. This was a 30 second exposure.

Thanks again Cathy. It was indeed dark. Even so I still got some washed out spots right at the bottom of the little rapids but it didn't really seem to hurt the image. I kind of like the effect actually, as long as it's not too distracting.

This is absolutely beautiful, Gary! I love the exposure, from the excellent veiling to the green reflection to the soft ambient greeen lighting! Very nicely shot and worthy of a prize in my book :-) Congratulations so far and good luck!
