The power of water to cut through rock is demonstrated clearly at Sunrift Gorge in Glacier National Park. A moderately slow shutter speed was used to blur the water enough to make it "silky smooth" but not so much that water flow patterns lost their general form. A substantial amount of perspective correction was needed to make the tree on the left stretch upward accurately in the photograph and it was accomplished by tilting the film plane. I think this black and white photo shows a nice contrast between the smooth water and the rough rock.
