Went up to the Columbia river gorge yesterday wanting to experiment with some long exposure shots this was taken at 110mm F/22 an 763 sec. using a B&W 10 stop and 6 stop stacked. Some feedback please?

Not sure what you did in PP but your image is way too dark...the artifact in the sky, 20% in from the right side, pulled my eye. Printing it would make it appear darker still. ;)

Ya, I noticed that subtle line in the sky to . Could that be from stacking the filters maybe? I also think the shot seems like it has kind of a lot of noise. Isn't that normal for really long exposures ?

Overall I really like the picture! I just don't know what you have cloned out on the left hand corner on the water and if it was worth it because for me, it ruins the photo. :(

On close inspection I think that the artefact in the sky chauney mentioned could be flare from lightning bouncing between the two filters. There is also slight vignette in the photo ( if you ask me good vignette). The dot on the left really looks like a cloning tool job, other thing that may have been the cause was a droplet of fluid between the two filters or filter and lens.

Oh my, I've been there many times and that first image just doesn't do it justice. Way too dark.

The second take with further editing is a bit better but you're showing light streaks on the ridge just past Vista House. A bit more subtlety there would help.

And yes, the Columbia doesn't flow that steep there.....

Ehh, I'm really not happy with the way this has turned out. I've spent a lot of time in PP trying to get this shot right but it's not really turning out how I want. Fortunately I'm not to far from this location so I'll just go re shoot it and hope for better outcome. Like I previously stated this is my 2nd try at long exposure. Do you guys have any helpful tips for when I go to re shot this? I do remember I forgot to turn on long exposure noise reduction so I'll try to remember that.
