Challenge: Natural Body of Water II (Advanced Editing VII)

Date Uploaded: Nov 12, 2013

A cold misty morning on the Meramec River in Missouri.
Not sure what possess me to take this, cold water almost up to my waist, fighting with the rushing water to keep the tripod still and not float down stream. Any mistake and camera would have a swim and be toast. Anyway the camera and I survive this. The final image is a combination of three exposures (not combined via HDR)

I give you creds for putting yourself and the camera out there, well done. It's also very good, but I think I would tried to underexpose it a bit because of the background, or done two shots where you just mask in a slightly darker background. Maybe. 8

dramatic and serene at the same time, perhaps a testament to the power of nature.

Nice longish exposure, and the mist adds a nice touch!
