I think you caught it really well -- shows a rushing torrent of water, but yet shows some flow. Looks like a great happy medium to me Sandra! Lovely work.

For the reason stated I agree you have got the shutter speed just right here. I also like the even exposure throughout (not always easy to get the right detail in the water and the surroundings) and the colours of the foliage are beautiful. The leaning tree at the top right also holds the composition together.

Beautiful Sandra, we were shooting at the Birks of Aberfeldy last week, very similar conditions, Louise was slightly faster than my 1 second exposure which resulted in better shots for her...where there is a lot of water too slow produces too much white...good balance in your water and the Autumn colours compliment well.

I like the fact that the water hasn't been smoothed out too much and you can still see movement.
The colours of the woodland and the exposure of the trees are great.

Good one Sandra and I think the water has turned out exactly as you planned it.,but there is more to this image than just water. Lovey autum coloursand the leaning tree is a bonus. Well done.

I think you have! Slow enough to show the flow and fast enough to stop me moaning! Beautiful shot, with all the details spot-on, even with the speed. Well caught!

Water still a bit milky to me, but lovely shot Sandra with great composition, lighting (I especially like the gleam on the stones) and balance. The large version is fabulous!
Regards and have a great weekend, Jim.

The fast/slow speed question on these tends to be a very personal thing. I personally hate silky/milky as it's never seen like that. For me you have the perfect compromise here.

I saw a technique once in a magazine of taking two shots at different speeds (one "silky", the other frozen), then blending them together. Intersting, though I never got round to trying it

Nice work

Beautiful colour and the motion blur in the water is bang on, without being over cooked.

Hi Sandra - I do like this composition. It's taken from a good viewpoint to concentrate the attention on the water. The shutter speed you've used has been very effective and catches the balance you were looking for. I have come to the opinion that shutter speed depends to a great extent on the volume of water. A heavy flow demands a faster speed to nail the detail in the water. Thie one is well done. Nick
