Very nice job.  What is that structure used for?  Someone took a lot of time and effort to construct it.  Also, how did you manage to get your gear there?  I would probably loose my tripod and camera, and maybe me along with them.  Did you happen to get any with a little faster shutter speed?  Dave

Lovely image of a strange structure.

Fish trap would be my guess.

The shore was only about 10 feet away but the water was pretty strong...I had a rope around my waist which was being held by a friend...since the water was only knee deep where I was shooting, I felt pretty safe...didn't get a chance to shoot it with a faster shutter speed since I wanted the blur effect using a ND filter.

Re: Balanac River - CC welcome

Julius, that is a wonderful image. The general "rightward" orientation of the clouds is complemented by the blur of the water in the lower left. Nicely composed and exposed too. Where is the Balanac River? Reading through the thread, the structure being a fishtrap idea looks pretty plausible, though it looks like those round rocks might roll around under high flows.

Did you happen to take any with a faster shutter speed? I'd be curious to see that water and the rocks underneath in a little more detail if you have any.

Thanks for posting.

Balanac river is located in a province south of Manila...2 hours away...sorry I don't have any images with faster shutter speeds since I was trying out my new Lee Filters to get the blur effect.

Thanks Julius. As the saying in the US goes, I do learn something new (nearly) every day! No worries on the requested photo; this one is a beauty.

1.  Holy crap is that a unicorn on the left?  What a magical place 

2.  Did you focus on the rock formation right in front of you?  At 100% view the detail there is striking.  Awesome.

3.  Wonderful, wonderful pic.  Something worth selling IMO.

4.  Not necessarily a criticism, just what goes through my head:  when I look at the photo I find myself wanting to see inside that rock feature (fish trap) more, and also wanting to see up around the fish trap to the left to see where the river goes.  Maybe this is a good thing... the photo has captured my attention and imagination.

5.  The water looks perfect IMO.  Just the right shutter speed, not too slow or too fast.
