It's really close to being an outstanding image, but for some reason it falls short to me. Compostion is excellent, though I think I'd crop just a bit off the bottom . Shots like this are often presented with a little longer exposure, making a little more of a ghost of the water surface. I'm not sure if that's what's bothering me or not. I like the sky. The color and clouds look very natural. (You have a few dust spots that should be removed.) The color of the water seems a bit to orange to me, especially in the foreground. Maybe take a little of the saturation out of it? I'm not sure I'm helping. I want to love this, but I'm not. Hope my suggestions help.

While it's a very nice shot, and with the combo of cpl filter and the gnd, you are getting that smooth look to the water, I agree with Jon that the image seems too orange to my eyes.

I realize that colors in images like this is purely subjective but I thought I'd give you an alternate look. I just corrected for white balance and added a bit of contrast.

I hope you don't mind my edit and I understand if you don't care for this look.

Thanks for the replies! I just wet cleaned my sensor 2 weeks ago, this 1D MK II is a dust magnet. This was as long of an exposure that still showed some detail in the rocks just below the water. I shot the foreground exposures between 6 and 30 seconds, this one at 8. Anything slower than 8 just gave me a a grey washed out foreground, with no texture in the water. Sometimes that works, but I wanted to show the texture of the rocks just under the water.

The foreground is orange. I shot in cloudy WB, and even with toning down the saturation -10 in the foreground, it was still pretty intense. Thanks for the edit, it was pretty close to what I was after. I changed the WB of my foreground and left the sky untouched, which was closer to how I was viewing it at the time of capture.

Here is the re-edit with the corrected WB layered into the foreground.

This motiv has a lot of potential I like the both the front and the sky.
The sunny-part of the sky is burnd out and the water seem to be a bit "foggy". Are you able to upload the orginal pictures? I would love to make a try to process this beautiful scene.
