Here is my first go at slowing down the water (sorry not sure of the term for this!) I took this in a local wood this morning and rushed home to see how it had turned out. I then had a play with the clour and added a border. I must say that I'm quite pleased with the outcome. Thanks again to you all for your recent comments on my other images, I really appreciate them. :0)

Thank you so much for your comments. I do quite like it with the exposure that it's set at but lightening it a little wouldn't be a problem. :0)

Fine as it is, but I agree that a little extra mid-range brightness would lift it without spoiling the mood. The flowing water has turned out very well.

Excellent capture but the darkness does not take anything away from it - Ian

Excellent first shot Catherine, feels great when a first attempt works does'nt it? Did you use a lens filter of any kind or just a low iso setting? either way it came out very good Smile
The only critizism i would offer is the background is a little dark for me but that's just my opinion, maybe try a slightly longer exposure?
Super effort, well done Smile
Ricky.

This shot was taken with an ISO setting of 100 F32 0.625s 42mm. I have done a copy and lightened it slightly aswell so that I can see the difference between the two. :0)

Very well composed and a great first attempt at blurring the water. The river must really have been raging to get that much blur in only five-eighths of a second! I also think this is a bit dark — the water's great but the surrounding forest is rather dark, which makes the whole scene look dark. Making a curves adjustment with a control point at input 75, output 100 brightens the forest while leaving the water almost untouched, which is important to avoid over-exposure there.

Thanks Chris. It is a beautiful place and it's not all that often that I get to go there without the children. This was my 1st attempt and I did have to enhance the colour to get this effect as it was rather flat looking. Thanks for your comments. :0)
