Bega River
5

An absolutely unexpected shot from Bega river, NSW. This is the case when overcast uninteresting sky suddenly provides beautiful golden hour light.

C&C is welcome, as well as editing and reposting into this thread. I have quite a few different crops of this image, below is just one of them.

Nicely done.  The somewhat monochromatic look is interesting, too.  Reminds me of toned BW prints from decades past.

Lovely shot! I must admit I'm always amazed when the weather provides you with a window like that. If I were to suggest anything, I might move the tint a bit more towards green - it feels a bit magenta to me?

Thanks! In this case it's not toned, just all yellowish-gold, although I'm not 100% sure if I got the balance right.

Thanks! That may be true. Good point. Usually I tune WB in camera in such cases, so that the live view image matches the reality. That way don't have to guess in postprocessing. This time I was in such a rush I forgot to do it, and now will probably have to work on WB more.

Nice!  Great "feel" to it.  Always good to be ready when the opportunity presents itself.
