*Disclaimer: Opinions are like noses, everyone's got one (that's the polite version of the phrase!) and mine is given here only in what I hope is a helpful fashion. If I didn't like this image, I wouldn't be writing this*

You were very bold to use an ISO speed of 100, on one hand you avoid noise issues and give proper motion to the scene (something I'd have bungled) but on the other (and this might have been intended) it gives an almost 'painted' depiction of the scene. Did you play around with the f-stop to compensate at all? Composition wise this is fantastic, and the overall size of the image is going to be just what a photomanip user might seek.

thanks for your critique! :)

In truth i had a very brief moment of time to take this photo, so mostly just had to guestimate the most appropriate shutter and exposure.
I was also not shooting specifically for stock which does affect the choices i make for the outcome.

What a wonderful photo! Good exposure and framing with great movement in the water and the angle of the stream, capped by the quiet grace of the rolling fog on the distant mountains. Reminds me a bit of Jessie Rae's "Over the Sea" video. Beautiful atmosphere - you can almost hear the waters dancing over their rocky bed.

The only item I might have done differently is a slight cropping (~2") at the top and bottom to tighten the focus and ramp up the thrill a bit - then again, since it's stock, and never good to crop too tightly - leave that to the end-user.

Thanks for sharing some of the mystic beauty of Scotland!

Im going to go look at that video.
And i can totally see what you mean about cropping to pull the focus in
