Really nice Travis. I like the foreground, it makes an interesting change from the usual rocks we see.

How do you get such a wicked dynamic range without HDR?

I bracket a series of identical shots at different shutter speeds or apertures, and then select one photo with a properly exposed foreground and another with a properly exposed sky. I then paste the foreground exposure on top of the sky exposure as a new layer in Photoshop, and erase the washed out sky using a large, soft brush to reveal the properly exposed sky in the layer below. Using a large, soft eraser brush leaves a nice transition between the foreground and the sky and mimics the effect of a grad ND filter without having to use any automated HDR software.

So its essentially a manual, controlled HDR. Seems simple enough, of only in theory.

Wonderful shot mate.
Lovely choice of SS to capture some really nice movement.

That's really beautiful, and the water rushing past just grabs your attention. I like it.
