Here is an image of a section of Aghanashini river among the Western Ghats near my native place. I captured it one early morning just as the sun rose over the hills. My effort was to show the warm hues reflected in the waters. Appreciate your views

Motion blurs are well tried but this one is special. Lovely composition with gentle contrasting region. I am sure (100%) it makes a better image as B&W. While this color version is excellent, I think elimination of the dimension of color in this case would help better focus on gentle flows and waves.

I personally would have preferred even slower shutter speed, but thats me :), love the composition and am dying to see this image in black n white too.

Thanks Ganesh and Nilanjan for your views. Ganesh, usually i would have preferred a B&W. In this, as my effort was to show the hues created by early morning sun, i stayed with color. However, I have posted the B&W version in illustration forum. Let me know your views.

adding to my vies mentioned in the illustration forum a static twig or branch or even a rock would reinforce the motion much better .....elimination the 2 small foam created on the top would have improved the composition i feel.....

Very well captured hues of the flow.
