Threads of Silk- on the Magnetewan

Had a special guest this weekend up from the Windsor area, a excellent young photographer, Brandon Broderick. We visited Brooks Falls on the Magnetewan river in the afternoon, and found the sunlight way too overpowering. So we returned later in the evening and enjoying a much softer light. He instructed me on the fine art of silky water effects, and I'm very Pleased! with some of my results. Still much to learn, as example cleaning up your picture area if possible, of stray branches etc. But I Love the dramatic flowing water and it's textures...

Flowing water has become a subtle color to your photos just fine-scale to foster.
Water movement is always an attractive interesting.
Self-image of water, where possible, always in motion.
Stationary stream of water is unreal brook-pictures ...
Regards ...!

I've played with this effect also, but I think it is more suitable to southern areas. I think,and you can disagree,that our part of the world is rugged and leaping white water personifies it.Just as the shaggy moose as above or shaggy wolf etc is N. Ont. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
