fantatsic light and scenery!
the only thing i don't like is the narrow crop on the top - a bit more of sky above the mountain would be better, I think!

This is beautiful and carefully planned. I like the use of the ND for the water movement, but I think the grad ND is somewhat too strong. I think they come with various gradations, and this image could have used a more mellow version - the foreground could have been darker and the sky lighter (IMHO!). Haveing said all that, I'll repeat my most important comment - this is a beautiful image!

As far as a lighter Grad ND? Nawww I like it how it is, adding a little punch where it needs it
