River Majesty by jjpeabody River Majesty by jjpeabody
Started this last night just scribbling around until I saw something. I really love the depth in this image and the tough of sunlight that's spilling through the atmosphere.

Done in Photoshop. I should not that I started with a thumbnail and then resized it up. It made things a little blurry, but once I added a contrasting edge to everything it just sung. Leave a comment and let me know what you think or if I could have done something better.

I'm glad I'm getting better because if I get furloughed then I'm going to need to kick up my commissions to support my drinking habit :D

This is a very majestic scene. The lighting in the center as it's shining through the cliffs is perfect! And I like the subtle reflection in the somewhat swampy water. The rocks in the water are also a nice touch and add a bit of color in that area. Fantastic work! :clap:

This seriously almost brought me to tears.
This picture that you did reminds me of my home and it reminded me how much I miss it.
Washington state looks just like this, with the pine trees, the overcast look, the fog/mist.
Everything about this is just like the wilderness of where I lived at.
You captured this so splendidly.
I love hoe you can start seeing the rock in the river bed, the moss on the rocks and the depth as you go further back.
I don't really see anything that could be improved upon.
Thank you so much for sharing this.
It's wonderful.
