River Radiant: An alternative

I wasnt sure whether to post this on not because it is so similar in many ways to the original post [link] . Ultimately though I prefer this at the moment, and I think the water looks sufficiently weird that other people might be interested.

The water does look very unrealistic, but its not faked in any way, its just a result of the reflection throught he trees from the sunset and the long 30 second exposure

I must emphasise that the processing here is very mimimal. The water has been saturated, but only slightly. The foliage has been saturated a bit more. The water used an exposure which was 0.5 stops darker.

so realistically, how dark was it when you took this? And this is surreal!

well light enough that you could see easily. In terms of brightness I would say it would be the equivalent of 20 minutes after sunset on a clear day.

Good evening,

My name is Peter Sawyer and I write on behalf of Phototuts+ ([link])

I would like to feature this image in an article I am currently writing about long exposure photography.
A link to the image, and the name of the piece would be given in the article.

Please let me know if you are ok with this ASAP.

Thanks Peter
