A whirlpool caught in a long exposure in a magical place called Illinois Canyon in Starved Rock State Park in Illinois.
Camera: Canon 5D
Lens: Canon 24-70mm
Filter: Heliopan thin Polarizing filter
Exposure: 30 seconds
Not the type of image I could bracket to capture exactly the same and layer the two together. What I did is save the darker version of this and worked in Curves in Photoshop and lightened it up. Then opened both images up and layered them and removed the light areas by darkening with the eraser/brush tool at about 35% by removing the lighter layer until she looked pretty.
