    Nothing in this scene is above water except maybe the water itself spraying up as it falls over the drop in the Grand River here in Downtown grand rapids. I see this as being somewhat of an abstract for me.

    I love that second shot. I have to admit it took me a while to comprehend what was going on in the pictures due to the reflections - It has an almost ethereal look.

    beautiful work :)

    These are really interesting shots. I like seeing what you accomplish with the IR filter. I know some folks believe you need a fully modified camera, but these are cool shots on their own. I'd be curious to see a regular color shot of the same spot just for comparison. You're right, a very nice abstract feel. :2thumbs:

    A regular color one would be something similar to :
    KBeezie on deviantART except I don't have enough ND filters (or dark enough) to acheive the same duration. I think though that the IR filter itself plays a lot to the transparency of the water (or simply making it look black), and the CPL helps compound the contrast.
