Moving on some more around the west side of the island, racing against sunset to get as many photos in the mist as I can before the upcoming sunny days. I happened on a tidal pond, with the water still rushing out of it as the tide was falling. I took two nearly identical photos of this scene, one with a fast shutter, and one with about 1/3 second, experimenting with how the same shot would look with somewhat "flattened" water. This is a technique that I will use once in a while, but very cautiously. It seems to be something that shows up in a lot of photos with water, sometimes to great effect, and I think, perhaps, sometimes overused. I think that often, water needs to look like water, with motion stopped to show.
You all be the judge. I would be interested to hear if anyone else feels as I do.
