Hi Andrew,
What a beautiful composition. The effect of the slow exposure makes this an amazingly beautiful photo. I like the big log up front and the colors of the falen leafs and the moss. I'll put this one with my fav's

Hi Andrew
Fabulous shot. The time exposure really captured the movement of the water extremely well. With the f-stop at f/11 you managed to capture extreme details and reveal the breathtaking beauty of the scene. Your composition & POV are excellent and really provide impact to the photo. The colours are just beautiful and very well saturated. The exposure is spot-on and lighting was handled very well.
Great work and TFS.

Very nice and amazing landscapes, Andrew. DOF, POV, colors, framing, and composition are very good. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us. Congratulations...

Techniquement parfaite cette prise Andrew.
La netteté et la qualité de l'image sont parfaites.

Félicitations pour les beau contrastes de couleurs sans doute causé par l'humidité des lieux et de la parfaite exposition des tons de rouge et de vert. Une superbe composition et un endroit très agréable à regarder.

It's hard to "sell" a landscape shot at this size, but this one succeeds brilliantly. Vivid autumn colours and a very nice perspective. A great place for kites, Pied Flycatchers and Wood Warblers in the summer, too!

Excellent shot Andrew, good exposure and composition. Nice speed on the water. Well done.

Hi Andrew - i dont use this site much anymore (more TE) but i noticed this shot and thought wow! I love these long exposure shots with the water all nicely silk. One thing id like to ask you is how you managed to get the saturated colours you managed in this shot? did you process the image to add saturation & sharpen or was this the result from the camera? When i shoot images like this the foliage is never quite strong - this has the Velvia feel to the shot!
