    Now there's a shot and a half especially the contrast between the splash of light and that dark brooding sky.

    I like the texture; I like the glow; I like how clean it is.

    did the light come from anywhere in particular, or was it accomplished w/ dodge+burn?

    I have loved this style of photograph ever since I saw David Burdeny's work. I would love to know how you processed this!

    The log looks almost metallic. I really like the directional light in this.

    I love the contrast and light, day or night?

    I'm wondering if the light around the log is really a result of the long exposure + the water moving over/around it? It looks like the "white mist" look you get on a waterfall with very slow exposure.

    Come, Miles. Share. :D

    Thanks everyone!

    I created the contrast by manipulating different versions of the black and white conversion (different colour bias in the conversion leads to different resulting tonal values). This was mainly to create a darker sky and then to be able to highlight the log without losing detail in it.
