[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I just loved the look of this fast-flowing high river contrasting with the spring daffodils on the bank - and thought a long exposure would capture the flow perfectly.

Spring is finally rearing its lovely head!

Hope you like it - thanks for looking.

It is beautiful, Doug, I love that spring scenery too! The flowing movement of the water created by the slow aperture is so smooth and lovely, and the daffodils give a spring touch... notwithstanding the water overflowing the bed of the river. Beautiful colours, great light, nice pov... thank you, it's superb,


wow, fabulous shot, love the composition and the subject,love that slow shutter speed looks like the river is a little high

Bonjour Dog,

Félicitations pour cette belle composition originale.
Merci et bravo!

Hi Doug,
Very nice how you managed to play with the waves, creating a real great effect! The lightening adds to the general effect ... makes me feel I wanna try something like this, once I find a convenient place ;-)
Greetings an TFS,

Hey Doug,
what a fantastic shot of this river!
You've caught the movement of the water perfectly here.
Excellent contrast between sharp and blur.
Very nice light and colours.
You've got this long-exposure thing down to a tee!
Very well done!
