rushing water

I've got a good photo buddy in Ohio -- he never leaves a comment here so I'm not even going to mention his name -- but he has always given me good advice about my photography, and actually he has taught me a lot in the past three years that I have known him.

He thinks that these water shots have too much brown color to them -- and I've almost got to agree -- but I was trying to tell him that this is what rushing water looks like after a large storm -- the brownish tinge is from all the silt moving down stream -- the result of dissolving mountains and hills.   He advises me to remove the brownish color -- I guess that would make them look more acceptable to the general public that isn't aware that rushing streams are, indeed, somewhat brownish.   Oh, maybe I will follow his advice and turn this water into "cotton-balls", but I just don't know -- a penny for your thoughts...

This photo is of the same un-named creek on Mount Tamalpais that I showed you yesterday.   I call it "Occasional Creek", and that's pretty much what it is -- during the Summer months the flow slows to a trickle.

as you leave the water the natural color, it makes it look more real. as the water is whited out, then it makes the picture look somehow more fake. I would say leave the water as it is.
