Congrats on winning POTD. Awesome image. #9475323

Tad Bowman 6/22/2011 6:26:29 PM

Thanks everyone. I really appreciate the kind words and feedback. To address some of the feedback:

* The shot was taken at f16 at 13 seconds with a focal length of 34 mm.

* I wanted this scene to be evenly lit as possible. However, it was a cloudless sky. So, I had to wait until about sunset for the harsh light to subside. The drawback was that it got dark pretty quickly in the scene and continued to get darker and darker, which only allowed me about 10 shots until it just got too dark. I normally don't like this long of a shutter speeds because I like a little texture in the silky water, but I didn't have a choice. I took what I was given.

* Processing: Not a bunch. In Photoshop CS 5, I just did some global highlight reductions (very little), removed dust spots, lowered the exposure, and bumped the saturation. #9475718
