I wanted to incorporate moving water in a recent engagement session so when I saw this location I knew it would be perfect. The couple had to hold still for a four second exposure.

I know about the blown highlights on the right but, since they are not recoverable, decided to not let them bother me.

Of course comments and constructive criticism are welcome.

Amazing photo.. Did you consider cropping the blown out rocks?

I was going to say that it didn't look that bad. On second thought, it might be a good idea.

Yeah, I'll probably stop back as soon as I have time and get another photo to blend and recover those highlights.

I have another tighter version but I don't like the composition as much:

That crop is perfect, it brings them in and makes them more a focal point. love this!

Thanks for the feedback. I guess I am starting to like this tighter version. Although it's pretty much identical except for the crop, it is actually a different photo :)

Great photo except I don't like all the sun leaking through and blowing out spots on the legs and such.


My entire hobby of gear lust has temporarily been shifted into overload. Please be patient while my mind tries to get back onto the road to recovery. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause....

Thank you and I agree about the hot spots. We tried to block the light with a reflector but it was too high.

The tighter crop is much better though you need more light on the guy's face.

I must agree the cropping makes the couple the focal point. Great Picture!

I like the tight one too. I'd like to see the first one with recovered high lights.
