[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bass Creek in Florence Montana flowing down from the Bitterroot Mountains. Spring run off is now in full form and very strong after more than normal snowfall over the winter. Taken from a tripod and with a circular polarizer to reduce glare and to help mute the mid afternoon light.

Hi John,

You're capturing well this mountain stream by a good angle and excellent tone with good exposure, so water's flowing in the riverbed that gradually becomes it and seeing the falling spectacle have power. It is a good selection that it is in the direction of the upstream from the lower part of a river like perspective for the camera, I think. And, the slow shutter speed by 0.5 sec describes the power of the river well.


Hi, John -
The thumbnail must be opened to really appreciate the technique and beauty of this shot. The 1/2 sec. exposure was enough to give the dreamy effect to the stream while still conveying its power and natural beauty. The rocks and foliage are sharp. Good exposure levels throughout. The diagonal composition is pleasing. Well done!

good diagonal composition, the stream flows through the picture and we can see its power. The shutter speed is just right. Good job.
