Thanks for everyone's comments! M4S, I think I converted this shot to LAB and applied mild curves before switching back to RGB. The sun was coming from behind my right shoulder but was blocked by a moutain side. The yellow is a reflection of another hillside upcreek that was directly in the sun, so generally what you see here is how it looked.
This shot is splendid!!! Love everything about it...smooth water, crisp rocks and especially the golden light on the water!!! Did you do anything special in the post processing to get this effect? (other than the slow shutter for the water)
