Challenge: Best of 2006 (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: Yosemite NP, CA
Date: May 15, 2006
Aperture: F/22
ISO: 100
Shutter: 8 Sec
Galleries: Landscape, Water
Date Uploaded: Jan 10, 2007

Had the camera hanging upside-down on the tripod just over a pool of water to get the angle I wanted, and composition was a bit of a guessing game since I couldn't see through the viewfinder.

The scene here is somewhat distorted by the ultra-wide angle lens, the hill in the back is quite a bit steeper and goes up more than back like it appears here.

I like how the water looks like it is misty and slowly falling, then being surrounded by rocks and plants. the different shades of green also really catches my eyes

absolutely beautiful, one of the best of its type. the lighting and colors are perfectly balanced, and the detail in the shadows and highlights are exactly where you'd want them to be. this stands head and shoulders above the similar shots i've seen in this challenge. good luck!

Nice job showing the lushness of the forest. The color saturation is great.

I really like the lighting; it makes the green almost glow.

I like how the white of the water breaks up the consistency of the greenery. Good exposure.

7 - Very nice. Really like the greens. Frame gives it a 'poster' feel, which is 'good', but I wonder about a variation, especially for this medium - even if perhaps just a little 'finer', not sure. I know it is 720, but still, 'wish it were bigger'. Bottom part of the image, perhaps maybe a little too tightly cropped - but your call, obviously. Just seems slightly out compositionally/balance wise.

Great capture. The long exposure is very well managed here.

Perfect wall mural material - adding to my favorites.
Serene, rich and just enough motion in the water to make the shot not as static.
Well done and hope this beautiful shot does well in this challenge!

Amazing sense of depth and serenity. Particularly like how you do this with practically nothing else than green, brown, and white.

great greens, very rich. The silky water thing is getting a bit over done, but this is well executed.
