I love your stock and I have wanted to use espcially the long exposure water ones for something specific in mind. I hope you don't mind me saying though, something just isn't right here on this one... any ideas? My first thought was maybe the darkness in the bottom right?
Feel free to hide my comment if you think I'm talking drivel though :) I wont be offended.

Thanks for appreciating my stock :) Maybe what you're picking up on lies in the dark spots because of all the shadows the trees are casting in an otherwise bright scene. I was hoping they would provide a natural vignette effect since they tend to appear around the outer edges of the photo, so that more attention would be drawn into the flowing rapids, but that is just my interpretation. As an artist, I still appreciate other people's interpretations :)

I think when you are using stocks - particularly when incorporating differnt things into a background, you feel as though it has to fit perfectly into it. Of course the last effect you want to produce is that horrible 'blue screen' edging. So it could just be that I am too lazy to find a way to incorporate another item into a dramatic shift in light.

Who knows though, could still end up using it, (if only to play god a little and decide that the water will go where I want it to - and make that area frothy :lol:) One of the great thing about these long exposures is that a bit of artificial bluring can almost dissapear into it when done in the right direction.

I see what you mean, that's why I tend to shy away from photomanipulations myself :) Light and shadow are among the trickiest things to work with in order to pull off a realistic image with a seamless flow. Reminds me of something funny one of my Photoshop teachers said once, that people don't walk around with "drop shadows" following them =D Instead, that often means the painstaking work of brushing shadows in manually.

And for artificial lighting, I'm kind of disappointed that some of the better filters Photoshop has to offer only work in 32-bit mode, so reason more for me to steer clear of photomanipulations :)

Agreed; when the quality of the originals used to be low you could get away with it more, these days every step in resolution gives you a few more months of work to do it right.
Thus... I think some of the best photomanipulations these days tend to be those that have the ability to intentionally take away from the reality - say for instance taking the frofhy water and using it as a start point for a digital 'water colour', (even if a little cliché.)
