Same date & location as "Nature's Melting Pot". Just experimenting with color and kinda liked the effect after I went crazy.

Since some of you have asked, here's more detail on what I did. It was really pretty simple. I took the shot that I already had (one of my outtakes from the Long Exposure Challenge) and used the tint brush. I used a pretty large brush with a soft edge and just started cycling through colors and spotting the shot with them, repeatedly, over and over. Then took the burning brush and brought the tones down a bit. That still wasn't enough - it looked like cotton candy - so I layered a b/w version with high contrast and a muted color version with high contrast. Voila! (A mess, but then I always did like chaos!)

There's something great about flagrant abuse of the whole color spectrum. Works for me. Kind of reminds me of a cross between a cascading mountain stream and an oil sheen. Come to think of it, maybe BP's PR department would be interested in this.

And orderly chaos you have. Great idea, great follow through.

This would be awesome for a "fantasy" type challenge! I just love looking at this. It's a feast for the eyes. Creativity and a little (okay, a LOT) of PS is a wonderful thing.

This shot is great! The colors make this look incredible. Would have been a good Fantasy World shot. The detail that remained after the coloring is excellent. The apparent randomness of the color placement is great too. Very nice work!

Holy crap! How the heck did you do this? It's like a waterfall on acid or something :) Great capture of the falls and long exposure :) Just a tad oversharpened but it doesn't take away from the image :) Good job Jimmy :)

very fun effect I like to look at it on here but I don't think it would be a print I would display. It's a great idea to play around with the the colors on water though, I bet you can find a shot that this really works on.

Now this is one mad editing job that really does work extremely well! The photo underneath the editing is great too, with well exposed highlights and a nice gentle flow of water :) Fab job!

The picture is nice but the post processing is great. Gotta love digital cameras, I don't think that would even be possible with a film camera. Good job

weird but i really like it. experimentation is the key to life.

I dont normally like shots like this... but this is strangely appealling!!! Definately a technique to continue to play with. It reminds me of a motivational poster. Nice job

The crop for mine could have been a bit narrower, and the colours a bit less surreal. Just my 2 cents and I'm probably wrong, but the processing distracts from the photo. Other than that, it's a nice photo and it's always fun to try different things.

Really unusual and creative, fantasy like, great shot and manipulation. Very pretty.

This would've been great for a Fantasy World challenge.

Hmmm, not sure I like the purple/grren/blue spots...just me LOL. Great location though.

Really cool effect! Not exactly a traditional long-exposure-to-give-soft-water-effect waterfall, but all the better for being different. :)

Nice work! How about a little more detail on how you did this. The colors seem very prismatic, i.e. not just simple color adjusts?

I am not too fond of this effect. Perhaps if you only used it on the water itself, or even better just that spot where the water hit the lake, it would look better.
It is too colorful, in a somewhat flamboyant way.
The shot itself is beautiful. I love those layers of moss and the smoothness of the water on them.
