Robinson River, Shenandoah NP, Virginia, USA by Vladimir Grablev

Most of the time, I prefer my photographs to retain some level of textures in running water, but this portrait of Robinson River is an exception. I knew that there is not enough light to capture all the details on the slow color film that I had (Kodak Ektar 100). My calculation indicated a 30-seconds exposure, that would smooth the water into a colorful mist. But the light was so soft and the moment was so serene that I decided to photograph this scene anyway. Final image turned out even better than I anticipated. I like that intriguing difference between the level of fine details in trees at the top of the frame and the soft look of its bottom part.
