[NATURE] Sungai Congkak, Hulu Selangor

I've always wanted to shoot those silky water shots. Recently had the chance to shoot it when I visited Sungai Congkak, Hulu Selangor. Equipped with Cokin GND2,4,8 and a tripod, there I was with a few friends soaking ourselves in the chilling water trying to get the best angle.

This won't be the last time me visiting Sungai Congkak. I was mesmerized with the calmness and cooling atmosphere. I will be back for more shots and leisure, with family and friends.

The shots were post processed with Orton effect (you can download the photoshop action on the net). However, I didn't use 100% of the Ortonized output. I blended the Ortonized layer with the original layer with a 30-45% opacity.
