Great shot and great colors. Nice use of extended shutter speed without overdoing it.

beautiful composition,colours, but may I say,my only critique would have bn to use a polariser filter to cut through the glare,showing the rocks under the water and darkening the water at the same time, but very very nice

Super shot πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken along the Moose River near Old Forge NY in the beautiful Adirondack mountains.
Time
I normally don't shoot during mid afternoon but during the fall with cloudy conditions it is perfect. The soft light brings out all of this wonderful fall colors.
Lighting
This was shot on an overcast day to really help bring out the saturation of the foliage.
Equipment
This was shot using the Canon 6D, Canon 17-40 F4L, B&W 10 stop ND filter and sturdy Vanguard tripod.
Inspiration
This is one of my favorite locations to shoot. I love the exposed rocks in the foreground it leads the viewer's eyes to the bend.
Editing
I use Lightroom to do 98% of my editing. Remember always shoot RAW!
In my camera bag
Besides the Canon 6D and the wide angle 17-40 F4L and 24-70 2.8 I keep a collection of filters from 10 stop filters and polarizer's. But some of the most important stuff in my bag are lens cleaners, flashlights, fire starter's and lots of snacks and water.
Feedback
Try to always use a tripod for landscape shots. It helps you to slow down and really think about what you doing. Always be thinking of how the light will affect the feel of your photo. Never be afraid to get wet and dirty but remember no picture is worth risk of injury or death. The absolute most important aspect is to always stop and take in the beauty without the camera or cell phone, just sit back and enjoy the view after all you put in a lot of work and scouting.
