Blackwater falls

By Phil_Restan    
Tried this location a couple of times but not really had much success. I did try the big stopper but just a bit over the top. This was without filters of any type and almost out of the camera, just the raw converted in LR.

Superb, Phil!

I've been trying to capture something like this for years and still haven't quite managed it.

I love the almost metallic quality of this - it's almost like mercury!

Cheers Bill, The effect I think can be attributed to the fast water and 1/20 second exposure, not enought to give me cotton wool but enought to smooth it out a little.

Like the choice of shutter speed in this Phil, it has captured the water movement well.

I do like to see water in a scene like this look like flowing water, rather than the milky smoothness with the big stopper.

Great 'freezing time' shot Phil, that's the way to 'shoot' the rappids Smile

You're using roughly the same exposure I use depending on the speed of the water, I like a bit of movement but not silky milky. The slight tint of colour is very nice adding to the metalic feel mentioned by Bill.
