    First look...WOW!! Overall, this image is amazing. I love the simplicity, and you made it all come together with a precise exposure. Getting clouds like that is one thing; then you have to capture the scene...Perfect!

  • Aaron M Photo PRO 4y

    Holy moley this is a great capture. I really like how you kept this wide and got the clouds to draw the eye into this photo. The water movement is stunning and I guess the shaking tripod works well because it's super neat that some of the water has an amazing blur but some of the water is stooped in motion. Really love the light rays as well. Neat photo!
