A couple photos from Soda Dam. Exposure time was around 20 seconds. Only took a couple pictures because the temperature was much lower than I thought it would be.

The light is a little harsh, but I like the overall effect. Maybe the rocks are too bright and not because of the light but longer exposure. Would love to see if you can selectively tone down the brightness of the rocks, it will make the water pop better.

Very unique formations and it looks to be real cold, too. Both are really nice. I'll choose the first for the comp. Nicely done.

The temperature was about 10deg and I forgot to bring a coat with me. I took a total of 6 pictures before I started to freeze.

I like the colors in the rocks better in the first, but I like the second image better.

That is a cool formation there. #1 is my favorite of the two. Now how come such a long exposure though?
