The Serpentine Offering by alexandre-deschaumes The Serpentine Offering by alexandre-deschaumes
This picture was done during a workshop in the "sea of Ice" ( Mer de Glace . France . chamonix )

I didn't use a long exposure here to keep the texture of flowing water. It was hand held with a graduated filter hand held as well ( LEE 0.9 Hard step ) to keep the sky ominous.

I chose a warm white balance to reveal some green in the water. I enjoyed this curved path of running water.. makes me want to swim in :)

It's one of my favorite from last year, hope you'll enjoy !

First impacts:
Oooh, look at that water, and that blue. That combination of black, white, and blue, tooo coooool! Those clouds are dramatic, the mountains are cool too.

Again, originality. To me the most original aspect of this photo is the difficult to get there. To me the loss of detail in this photo is very distressing. With more detail and correct colors in those dark places, (the mountains, the ground, the blue sky, the top half of the photo) I think the quality of this photo would take a huge jump. Granted, the contrast between white and black, dark and bright sunlight, looks to be an insurmountable obstacle. Looks like an amazing and harsh place.
What do you think?

Wow, that's an amazing shot!! :wow:

It is kind of sad for me though, because these little rivers speed up the process of the glacier melt, seeping into the cracks and pushing them apart.

But still a beautiful photo.
