Love the mood you have captured in this scenic view, Niek!
Great details and well caught motion blur on the moving water against the snow-capped mountains in the BG.
The sharpness and low POV are excellent, and light is very well handled.
The choice of B/W very well here.
A well executed work!

A superb b&w landscape with impeccable sharpness and nice motion blur of the waves. Good tonal range & excellent repetition of the rocks throughout. Good reflections in the bg & the snowcapped peaks make a nice focal point on the horizon. Tfs!

A very interesting image, especially in grayscale. the long exposure giving the tell tale water texture always loooks a magical effect. The distant hills and active sky act as a perfect BG, well seen and presented in B/W. TFS
Your background mountains & large area of the dark moody sky
make a good balance to the larger vibrant foreground area. I like the soft milkyness you obtained with your 1 second exposure on the foreground water,may I ask which Lee Filter you used for this shot.I'm undecided whether or not,the background mountain range,should be as sharp as the foreground
or not?Either way,very well taken.TFS

Hi Niek, a very good capture of this moody scene - and I like the BW version, it supports the mood. The BG with the Mountains and the cloudy sky enhance the picture.
Thanks for sharing - kind regards Monika

A great B&W. I like the tonal range covered from black, all the way to white. I think the portrait format works well here although I would like to see how it looked in landscape also.
a simple frame, adds to the image.
