thanks for all your comments and votes on my daddy pic its all very helpful.
for todays upload i have a got a waterfall from the David Marshel Lodge walk, This is the first time iver tried the slow shutter with water and i think its okay but im not 100% happy with it.
any ideas on how to inprove these kind of pics would be awesome.
Great soft tones of water you done well with light and colours....
Good shot, you got the water perfectly.
Great Shot & brilliant light
Like the water movement capture and the tones in this. However the foreground looks a little soft.
Fantastic water movement and color.
Thanks Bob and bombebit
You have the water flow spot on,well done.
This is a really nice capture for your first try, not as easy as it looks. If there is any breze about, I get a closer shot of the wter and wait for a still day before the next visit.
Really nice. Good shape to the picture, well balanced. Make sure you keep your camera nice and still.
Cheers Guys,,, its really not as easy as it looks lol
A beautiful shot, you have captured the water very well, well done.
Thanks Andrea :
Lovely Shot, The Power Of The Water Is Really Eye Catching
Great Image, Well Done
you caught the water well, the problem is always juggling with slow enough exposures to enhance the water, with fast enough shutter speed to prevent movement in the leaves and branches,
if im cropping intothe water only, i use 1 to 2 seconds, if i move back to take more of the surroundings and foiliage in, i use 1/4 sec, another tip, i usually burn in the darker areas in between the white of the water very gently to give more contrast without burning out the whites, also when you resize and before saving to web, give it a quick extra sharpen.
its a valient effort though and a waterfall id like to take.
A great first attempt this is a lovely shot. - gary
Fantastic image, very well done.
Fantastic shot! Love the way the water came out.
great first attempt stuart lovely shot ....peter
Good first attempt Stuart.
By far the most important thing is use of a tripod. I find I compose the shot and then look for and remove debris, take time and recompose if you wish.
Try and get the water to flow across the image, preferably the water emerges from top left or right ( rule of thirds helps).
I hope my comment helps, send me PM if I can help any more.
