Very cool... I really like these pictures... I see yours was done with a 6" exposure at f/8, I have really got to try it some time... Maybe if i could find a waterfall somewhere around here!

Again, Shot!

Jeff I found the sign over the rushing water quite funny.

Very nice cottony effect.

Now, if that isn't a contradiction, I don't know what is! I like the subdued lighting. Is that the actual color or was the white balance set wrong. Generally, for any night or evening shooting without flash, I use the incandescant WB setting.

You say you used a six second exposure and would like to try a longer shot. My experience has shown that 1/2 to 2 seconds is adequate for the "fuzzy water" effect. Any longer than that and the water becomes too blurred.

Thanks for the tip Cal I never considered the WB setting. As far as the 6 second exposure that was inneyeseakay comment.
