[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this picture on my wakeboarding trip a couple weeks ago. Every time you wreck you hope you dont have any encounters with fish because this river has fish the length of a school bus. This is the Columbia River, it runs through Canada and down through Washington State. The Columbia flows into the ocean at the border of Oregon and Washington. Although this river isnt as long as the Mississippi River its volume is greater.

This is a great shot. The rock cliffs add a lot of character to the scene. Be careful when you increase contrast & saturation that you don't overexpose your clouds making them brilliant white. Doing this can also give the sky some unrealistic shades of blue. Keep up the good work and stay safe on Iraq Phil!


Gonna have to go with the father on this one...Very nice composition and straight horizen, and I love the sky's reflection in the river but the clouds do have an "unrealistic" aspect to them. Although the long one in the middle kind of looks like Stuart Little's racing car to me for some reason, I dunno...Maybe I am tired, I should go to bed, good job & good night. :)zzzzzzzzzzz
