a long time favorite of mine - I liked and was surprised by how it turned out. A very temporary stream running through a flood plain after a heavy rain last year.

I like this too!
Especially the clarity of the water and the refracted details of all over which it flows...except for the minimal area of white, bubbly turbulence. The lighting appears to be of low angle...late day or early...but such that specular reflections are of absolutely no significance. It all lends to an engrossing, intimate mood.
A fascinating image!

Dave, thank you so very much for your visit and friendship.

Here is an image of mine that a good friend of mine likes. A few years ago we visited Southern Utah and hiked to Angel's Landing in Zion. My son (who has a fear of heights) got scared before we went the final leg and asked me to hang back with him. My daughter went ahead and made it the whole way. This is a shot that I want to do a do-over on - it is on my bucket list. I think it would be a perfect subject for your 3D work (but it might make me go cross-eyed!!).

While I like your little stream rivulet and the small story it tells, I have to say you shouldn't have hidden that spectacular image from Zion beneath it - that one deserved its own thread. That is a beauty, with all the delicate detail of the rocks, the layers of formation from that angle (which I remember from my own journey out there), rich colors and tones, deep shadows, great sky with dancing cloud formations. Wow, Piet, you've been holding back on this one!

Piet, I like this one quite a lot. The clarity of the water reveals the myriad of textures of the surface over which it flows. The exposure/processing renders lovely contrasts in color and lighting. The water is in motion and is almost audible.

I love the composition and the tone of this image Piet. However, the other image you posted stole the show, IMO !!! Excellent on both accounts.
