Thank you for the great comments everyone. I'm very happy with 5th place.

Steve, thanks a lot for the tip on the hot spot. I ended up using the dodge/burn tool for the print and I think it came out better that way.

This is an outstanding image, particularly since you did not apply any of the "December Rules". The long exposure time and good color makes this image special.

You have a hot spot in the lower center left. You might carefully select around it with the lasso or select it with the Magic Wand (in PS) to tone down the spot.

I really like this. has a nice feeling to it. the exposure for the rocks is nice.. and nice colors.. but, the light is a bit overexposed at center/left. overall good.

I really like these long exposure shots, the uniformity to this composition works very well. 7

The falling water looks surreal. Good capture

I don't like the border, but the image is beautiful. The long exposure gives the water an ethereal, glowing quality.

Very nice shot here. The long exposure works really well!

Not sure the border is needed though. [9]

This is right up there as one of my favorites of the challenge. Great colors of the rocks

Very nice in an almost surreal kind of way. The white spot center left is a little distracting. It wants to draw my eye there. Selectively adjusting the levels on that spot may (or may not, I'm still learning advanced ps techniques) help with this.
