A side stream at the bottom of Ragged Falls Provincial Park, Ontario Canada.

This is a HDR of 5 long exposures all shot with a 18-55mm lens, with Nikon 4x ND filter, at f22 in 1 f-stop intervals and merged to HDR to really emphasise the detail in the rocks and algae. The correct exposure (+/- 0 EV) was then softened and once again overlaid the merged HDR and set to 25% opacity to add back some the silkiness to the moving water and the overall mistiness to the image that was lost during the HDR process.
