Greetings from The Critique Club

Water flowing past rocks... Good subject for the challenge. It has an infinite continuity.
I like the contrast between the softened water, like a smooth white fabric and the sharply focused stone in the left. I think that in general, the blurred water is loosing most of its charm, but here it works just fine as a replacement of flowing time.
I would say that a bit faster shutter speed would have prevent the apparition of the blown out spot on the water surface. Also, I would have tried to insert in the composition something to stand out a bit more, to add more drama.

Is still a good picture and I want to congratulate you on the very good finish. Keep up the good work!

Very clever and original idea. Long exposure is sure pretty and indicates the infinityof time. 9

If this is suppose to show water running over rocks, I think it would be bettr not so softened. It looks more like a fog. Nice idea though.

Exposure too long for my liking.

I like this image. And you have very good control of your exposure. However, I think for this challenge, it would have been more effective if you had used a faster shutter speed. The water looks too misty to be able to smooth the rocks. If the water were more visible, one would be able to equate it's movement to it's effect on the rocks.

Nice effect. One suggestion for this one, though I know this exposure was difficult, would be to get more light on the rocks themselves, so I can see how smooth and their pretty sufaces.

Good interpretation, and well done at getting the silky water effect.
