3.23 - "Solid" 

One of the very popular waterfalls in Polish Giant Mountains (Karkonosze) called Wild Waterfall (Dziki Wodospad). It's very accessible and usually crowded with tourists taking selfies there, but I managed to pull few shots without anyone within the frame. The weather was pretty flat (strong overcast) with occasional snow-showers. Shot taken with a polarizing filter (shutter speed: 1s). During post-processing I wanted to convey the gloomy and depressing atmosphere that was present that day at the mountains, due to the weather.

This is one of the best captures of water I've ever seen, perfectly silky smooth yet remains clarity and texture

Thank you very much, Brandon! I found that shutter speeds around 0.5-1 s work really well when you want to achieve that effect. It depends on the speed of running water, but most of my shots are within this range. :)
