Challenge: Liquid II (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-5DS R
Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L IS USM
Location: Clear Creek Canyon, Golden CO USA
Date: Jul 21, 2015
Aperture: f/18
ISO: 125
Shutter: 1/4
Date Uploaded: Jul 21, 2015

There is a lot of water run off this year compared to other years. More snow and almost daily rain the last few months. In the creek there are lots of rocks. I searched for the just right place to focus the frame. I have to give credit to 21_F.gif Ursulafor the inspiration for this image. She creates magnificent flowing water images so I thought I would try to emulate her work. Looks like I succeeded in some sort of fashion I guess.

In the field, I set my white balance to 2800k. I used a stable tripod, 70-200 lens with the 1.4 extender. I also used my Lee filter kit to help control the bright areas of the image. The kit mounts to the front of the lens and you can stack up to 3 filters in it. I have soft edge ND filters, so I spent some time getting those in the right positions. Then it was just start taking pics with various settings until I got the affect I was going for.

Thanks for all the great comments and votes and the bling!

Go Hit Squad!

Well, this was my choice for the blue, which would have been quite fitting, LOL. I actually thought this might have *been* Ursula's, so I'd say you did a great job!

Well done on the ribbon. You know I was going to enter something like this but I just thought that people would think it was just cashing in, on past images I have done. Congratulations.

I love the multi-directional abstract motion to this, and how it draws you into the maelstrom.

Love the feeling of this - live tumultuous action of the sea crashing around you. Its also beautiful as a composition that is fluid as well as "liquid". A striking photo. 8

Surely a ribbon contender! I love this type of image, looks simple yet complex, has movement and sharpness.

Looks like a wave but it could be anything and that's part of the beauty for me.
