Challenge: In the Beginning... (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon PowerShot A80
Location: Ilston, Gower Peninsula, South Wales, UK

Aperture: 8

Well, life started in water... It could also be the beginning of a mighty river
I used a polariser to lenghten the exposure to 1s
then USM and increased blue channel (highlights only) and green (midtones), increased saturation of blues and greens

The colors in this picture came out great.

Very nice and I'm not usually a fan of these soft water shots. Only thing I don't like is the 2 straight leaves, one in the middle and one on the left. They seem to be too bright or harsh.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/04/2005 06:45:40 PM
foreground leaves are too heavy and saturated

Nice shot. I always like these water shots.I like the colors and the composition here I also like the green in the foreground. It breaks up the uniformity of the photo. I would like to see the details of this shot.

Lush, surreal, primordial and exciting. Perfect 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

great image - needed a foreground, but maybe the leaves are a little too "pokey" into the frame to complement, rather than draw eye away from image.

I like the smoothness of this image and the deep color tones. I'm bumping it up on my second pass.
