Nice one Fred. Just wondering why you chose those settings?

Hi Jade (jadus), when doing this river walk my camera is always in aperture priority mode, the aperture is usually set to the aperture that the light conditions will allow for a hand held shot, very often I use the pop up flash on f11 or f16 but the reflections can spoil the image, will add a version ie V3, if you need any further information please ask,
Fred.
