[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a small river in Gatlingburg, TN. In the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I find going into the mountains extremly relaxing and very rewarding. You can travel the same path time and again and always find a new perspective.
I shot this with a tripod and remote to cut down on my unsteady hands. Full second exposure with F-16 and a ND 4 filter.

Post processing: Adjust levels slightly. Sharpness x 1. Cropped and framed. Resized for TN.

Please feel free to post workshops. I welcome any and all suggestions for improvement.

Thank you all for viewing my photo.

Another amazing slow shutterspeed picture by you. Excellent. Good POV, composition and amazing milky water. I like it.



Nice job here,
your capture is very good,
great pov and dof,
love the silkness of the water,


Excellent shot ... wont do a WS myself as I dont see a way to make it better :) Love the effect of the ND filter.

Lovely soft water, great colours and a really nice composition. Extremely well done



I think this is a nice image with interesting foreground rocks. I think that when one slows the shutter speed it is easy to get overexposure in the water. I think you could have used a slightly faster shutter speed or a stronger ND filter.
