On this very cold evening, my husband and dog accompanied me to a remote river with interesting rocks, ice and movement...this was one of my favorite shots and fit the low key challenge; I had an ice image ready for the ice challenge, but this image spoke to me...levels,hue/saturation, desaturate slightly, lab color to sharpen, usm.

Still one of my favorite all time shots on DPC. In my opinion, this is one of the most underrated photos on the site. I can see this in the pages of B&W Magazine.

I love this composition, and also the drop as it inhanses the image so much.... The motion blur of the water is awazing.....
I really think this should have done so much better as it is a top image IMO.....

I gave this a 7, if you had gotten rid of the sensor dust (you are allowed to do that in basic editing now, or cleaned your sensor before) I would have given it a 9.
