Ouzel Falls, in the Wild Basin area of Rocky Mountain National Park.  This was a seven-image HDR shot, although I kept the HDR-surrealism dialed down pretty low.  Biggest problem with this shot was not slipping on the wet rocks and keeping the lens reasonably free of water droplets.  The tripod placement was pretty sketchy, but I never dropped my camera or myself into the river, so all’s well in the end.  I used a 2-stop neutral density filter and a polarizer to lower my shutter speed and blur the water.
