River Running by jjuuhhaa River Running by jjuuhhaa
One more photograph from last summer from Swedish Lapland.

There is a slight blur in the image which was achieved by gently breathing onto the lens during the long exposure and thus forming a thin layer of "mist" which then fades off and keeps some sharpness in the photo.

Nice breath effect here. It adds something to the image - I almost get the feeling that it'd be nicely exposed and composed, but quite *normal*, if it weren't included.

Lovely colours on the leaves, too...

Sweet! The lens mist is something I wasn't ever sure that I liked, but your image and the recent Adamus I saw using the same technique have made me a believer :D Nicely done!

What the hell is that breathing thing mate?!
im reading a lot about techniques lately but never heard about that.
I guess it only works in very cold environments...
Great image, perfect composition as always.

Marc Adamus techique? yeah right! aha. like noone before him did it. or maybe he patented it 50 years ago? sometimes people talk like the biggest ignorants....great photo, lovely light and dynamic composition. love it!

That is what I thought as well.
I am pretty sure that Ansel Adams invented this also :paranoid:

wow what an interesting way to add an effect! i never knew that. fantastic shot. and, in my very humble opinion, i feel i would enjoy this photograph more if there was more detail in the flowing water.

as i said, great shot, and keep it coming! :)
