Wow... I absolutely love this. It's very painterly for a photograph. I think you nailed the composition spot on.

Thank you for the feedback I'm glad you enjoyed this one :aww: I do usually try to have qualities in my photography that makes them more painterly then usual

I really enjoy the beauty throughout this muddy water series. What do you think makes them beautiful, given you regard them as such?

They are part of a larger process, they come about and play their role from a infinitely complex system of meteorology and geology and so on. That reminds me that we are each a part of some wider story and are connected, that is mostly what drives me to photograph them.

As for the beautiful, their formal qualities appeal my eye and I enjoy structuring them into a whole. To walk onto a scene like this one with a range of visual substances and trying to work them into some beautiful final form is a process of my own that i enjoy a lot and the investment of effort helps make work like this pleasing to me.

Thanks for the comment man :thanks:

Thanks for the response.

"Work them into something beautiful" puts to words exactly what I appreciate about these works. They are probably out there in the millions, yet it's luck but artistic skill to get to see them, and consequently being able to capture them.

Keep it up, I enjoy.

I obsess over water in my photography.
I tend to shoot it a little too much at times I'm sure, but it's what I love.
This photo is astounding in that it shows such a force of nature that most people never notice because it is actually so small.
Wonderful makes me smile!
