Default Running down the stream

Got myself out to take pictures of the ol' stream...



Anybody got any pointers and tips they wanna share? I felt as if I jinxed it up a bit from time to time. Maybe it's something I'm not taking into consideration

ADDS FURTHER DOWN

i like how milky/silky the water as gone if milky/silky is how to put it but im not that keen on the birds eye view although the fallen foilage does add a bit of interest. im not saying its a bad shot but just not the view i would have taken .

i agree, would like to see a little more of the stream and at more of an angle.

though the water looks nice as presented.

Ditto for me. Needs more context (i.e., wider perspective) and more of an angle.

I had a little mishap earlier today. I only got one photo of the stream at first because of my battery dying

But I got another battery later during the day and went back.

Here's my three favorites from that time I went out... If you want more I got it


This one is from the other side, in relativity to the first image I posted further up

I like this one, it has 9 different height levels in the stream

Tried having the camera mounted in the water to test the perspective in the middle

Now I know that two of them have thick borders from my wide-angle lens which is very poor. But I believe they give the images a sense of new perspective, somehow What do you guys think?

Posting a "re-run" of the third photo in the post of threes. It's taken without the Wide Angle Lens. You'll see what my Wide-Angle does and also maybe you'll like it better
