Editing Software Photoshop / Others / Photomatix Pro
File Format RAW
Notes RAW files converted to TIFF in LR5. 32-bit TIFF made in Photomatix 5. LR5 used to make a 16-bit "natural" image from the 32-bit TIFF. 32-bit TIFF also tonemapped in Photomatix 5. The two images blended in Photoshop CS6. "Natural" for the water, tonemap for the foreground and background.
The Santiam river, western Cascade mountains in Oregon. Yes, the water really was that color.
In my opinion: subject - 9, composition - 9, process - 10. Overall - 9.
not sure about the pov and colors (looks slightly oversaturated to my taste )
Excellent processing, but just not sure about the POV. 9
