Peter,

Outstanding pictures. Normally I don't like milky water pictures but these rise from the ordinary, both by the technical skilfulness and the dreamlike expression.

Clouds have landed

Dream woven

Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream came to my mind. Don't remember the whole quote

So the 18-200 VR shows it's capacity

Can I do some croppings and send to your e-mail adress?

Thanks for viewing and liking the touch I had for the water. You are right that some really don't like the water being dealt with in this way: unreal and a bit scary. Perhaps, tuning the shutter speed a bit 'faster' may make it possible for some threads of water to be seen. Anyway, real fun walking up the stream and framing portion of it that is less disorderly and tranforming it into a form that appeals to me senses.

One thing would like to share is the need to turn off the VR while shooting from the tripod. My experience is that the image is less as sharp if the VR is on then.

It is my pleasure if you have the time to crop the images hereand postthem back to me. Awaiting for your endeavor.

Peter

Very nice. They have a foreboding mystique about them.

Verydecent jobwith slow shutter speed, indeed!

Compositionwise, #2which offers a microcosm, is my fave

You remind me of the theidea of incorporating the sense of microcosminto theframing of objects in the photography. Indeed, #2 can be an entity by itself whereas for the other two, the foregrounds might have complicated the central theme -the stream. Thanks for viewing and the comments.

In the 'Biweekly Shoot Out' forum (being an Englishman and European, I prefer 'Fortnightly Challenge'), we mused about this (a little acrimoniously) when talking about "Fluidity" a few months ago. Some folk posted images of glass objects, which flow when hot, and very, very slowly when cold.

I felt it was illuminating to see the world in a more relaxed, glassy, time-averaged fashion sometimes, at leastfor comparison, and said so at...

So in future, when 'shooting' water features, I intend always to attempt both varieties, time & technology permitting.
