Majestic ending

I wanted to write something about this photo, but I think there's really no need for that. Majestic river Una and majestic sunset.

Beautiful, Denis! That foreground sweep of water is just luscious.

Thank you very much. If you don't mind I would ask you something, would it be better if I used a faster shutter speed ? I get very mixed comments on the longer exposure (more smooth water), so I would like hear what are other thinking.

It would be a different feel, but I think I'd prefer this. I know it's a bit of a cliche, but I love the really silky smooth water. Personal taste, In the end.

I've done a lot of waterfall photography, and almost always gravitate to longer exposures, although it is worth experimenting, as it can be surprising what does work best, at times. In this case, I think it'd be a shame to lose that sleek gloss, which also suits the evening mood, to my mind. Did you try other shutter speeds?

I wanted to try a bit faster shutter speed but I was thinking the same as you (so I didn't do it), I wanted not to lose the sleek gloss and flow because it creates this amazing shape that complements the whole photo. Anyways, thank you a lot for the the comments !
