Fingle Bridge Dartmoor

By janeez  
Up very early today, long drive down to Dartmoor to try and capture the early morning light. Unfortunately the weather was just too dreary so took these of the river by Fingle Bridge. Please feel free to give me some feedback as this is my first proper attempt at shooting movement in water.

Nice peaceful summer scene - a lovely shot.

I don't know what settings you had on your camera Jane, but it looks jolly good to me. Personally I'm not a great fan of very slow shutter speeds for water as it tends to become milky and loose its form. Apart from that it really depends on the look your after as to how fast an exposure you choose. I don't think there is anything else I can really add except for to recommend bracketing a series of pictures on different exposures and assessing what you like.

Great colours, well exposed and as said good composition. Captures the summer well

I think you're right to chose a location like this on a dull day. The water is not moving particularly fast here by the look of it and the soft glimmer looks good to me as does the view of the pebbles and stones below the water. It's a lovely image and you'm welcome down yar at any time.

A lovely scene - water is difficult to catch the movement. Right or wrong I usually use a fast shutter speed where possible.
