Minaret Cascade by narmansk8 Minaret Cascade by narmansk8
A cascade below the Minarets.

This was one of the strangest displays of light. During the magic hour the mountains were completely shrouded in clouds and there was no chance of any color that evening, or so I thought. After I had taken some exposures and it had gotten very dark I packed up my camera and tripod and started to walk back to camp. All of a sudden I looked backed and noticed the clouds starting to lift and a really strange glow hitting the underside of the clouds. I quickly ran back to the creek and tried to recompose in almost complete darkness. Was able to capture this strange light which disappeared second after this was taken.

Minarets, Ansel Adams Wilderness, California.

I love long exposures of water though sometimes they don't quite have the scenery to really make the shot. This, however, has it all. The scenery is gorgeous and the long exposure is done to a T :+fav:

This is gorgeous, i love the use of slow-shutter speed you used to get the water moving, it looks like silk instead of liquid. The centering is just perfect as well - i cant help but wonder if you cropped it or if this was the picture in its original state?

You're one of the few people on Deviantart that when I get a notification, I actually look at the picture.

Beautiful. Well-composed; my only comment would be the white balance -- you're a little cold, here. Certainly, I realize it is "cold," hence the snow, but most of your "whites" are closer to blue.

Thanks. This photo was taken well after sunset so to make the water color white doesnt seem appropriate for this image. A cooler tone better represents the scene I was photographing at the time. Thanks again :)

No problem, man. It looks great, either way -- what were your settings for this shot, anyway? What camera/glass/grads were you using?
