In this Valley View picture, the Merced River flows through the foreground with El Capitan and Bridalveil Falls being the most notable background elements.
This image is a composite consisting of two images. A properly-exposed image was used for the background. A much longer exposure was used to create the motion-blurred river in the foreground. The foreground image brightness was then reduced during post processing - so that it looked natural when merged.
