This is an excellent picture, but how many orange/purple sunset pictures have there been within the last month!

I love it, thanks!

Yes, we've no shortage of orange/purple sunset shots, but I like this one the way the blurred water almost looks like dry ice that stretches on and on. The dimming on the top is also nice.

No Variety? I see that differently. This is only one repetitive picture in a series of magnificent wallpapers! IFL is god, so beat it!

I'd also like to see shots without the satin water and surreal purple/yellow tonality for a change.

Why all the whiningg? IFL is the best website period! I don't know what I would do without it :-) Thank you for all the hard work! Some people just can't appreciate anything. This is an amazing wallpaper! I love it.

I agree. Excellent photo. For those tired of this please look through the THOUSANDS of wallpapers on this site. I am sure there are many you haven't seen.

It's a great photo thanks. With that said it would be nice to also see the ocean water with a more natural look.

very good pic, but could you please stop with the satin water effect?!

To me it really ruin's what otherwise would be a perfect photo. It's so unrealistic and ugly.

I hope that you at the very least start taking some shot's without the satin effect.

Thanks for sharing!

I like it. But in MasterChief's (and others) defense, to get these deep rich colors, you have to use a long exposure. Long exposure = satin water...

Haven't I already seen at least ten photos that look almost identical?

I'm constantly baffled by people who don't like the smooth water effects of long exposures. Even before I got into photography I love that effect. I guess it's a matter of taste, but I wish people who don't like it would stop telling the photographer how to take their photos. Do you go to museums and tell artists how to paint their art?

I'am not telling the photographer how to take is pictures, but only letting him know my opinion about them. It's called critizising, and yes, people do them to on museums.

@Gen: You said "but could you please stop with the satin water effect?!"

Is that not telling the photographer how to take this photos?

It look like a tsunami is coming. Nice pic
Posted By: Gen

No, that's not telling the photographer how to take his photos.

It's a request, expressing frustration and disapointment with the photograph.

I did not said stop with the satin water effect, but instead: "could you please stop with the satin water effect". It's a request, wich is different from telling him what to do!

my new desktop. Still not sick of the satin water, I lap it up (excuse the pun).

Only thing that gets me though, is the starburst looking vignette up the top streaked outwards (or inwards) like that intentionally, or is that just the light?

I love that effect..it would be nice if we could see the same photo with and without it!

Gen, you made a request telling him what to do, which in my opinion is the same thing as telling it without a request ;)

I think the "satin effect" is a great way to add mystery to a picture. Of course, there are many pictures out there with that kind of effect but each of them is unique and tells a different story. Therefore, Masterchief keep up your good work and remember: It is IMPOSSIBLE to please everybody! ;-)

I'm with Chris on this one. I am amazed at the negative remarks concerning long exposures. Maybe people don't understand the effect. A lot of P&S cameras don't do long exposures so maybe it is ignorance that is fueling these remarks. **(I do not mean that as an insult. Ignorance is the state in which one lacks knowledge, is unaware of something or chooses to subjectively ignore information.straight from the dictionary.

One of the first things that intrigued me about photography was long exposures of waterfalls. In fact, when I received my 40D the very first thing I shot was a long exposure of a creek. So maybe I'm partial to the "satin water" effect.

@ Gen: Adding please may be more mannerly but it still sounds like you are telling him how to take his pics. Taking a photo in low light requires a long exposure (slow shutter) which produces this effect. If he were to "freeze" the water with a fast shutter it would under expose the image in most situations. You can counter this with some other settings on the camera but many of those settings produce an undesired effect (shallow DOF, noise, etc....). You could do some heavy PP to produce this but most photographers I know shoot long exposure when water is involved to provide some mystery as Macindows stated above. It sounds like you know what you want in a photograph but know very little about photography. Look into it and you will see that this is what most professionals go for when shooting water. It may not be your cup o' tea but respect the fact that this is a great pic with perfect long exposure.

Ignorance?

I did not question the quality of the long exposure, or the picture it self. It is as you put it "a great pic with perfect long exposure".

What i did do was express my opinion that the long exposure, even thow as perfect as it is, ruins the water.

@ Gen: You would rather see choppy water. Got it. Would you also like to lose the nuances of light that are also the effect of a long exposure? Without a long exposure you have a very dark picture with little or no detail in the shadows. No long exposure = no pic, unless you want to introduce noise and a shallower DOF both of which are undesirable for a photographer.
