4. Janets Foss upstream (this one isn't very clear as the lens got soaked with the spray from the waterfall further up the path! also I've messed about with hue/saturation quite alot)

Each of these has something special...you have a way of capturing angles that accentuate the motion. I like how the first one feels like the photo is being filled up...it starts small, and just fills you up as you gaze downward.

The third and fifth seem to portray a frozen waterfall. The white is so dense that is seems frozen. Everyone likes their running water a little bit different, andI personally like mine with just a little more than a hint of motion, but then I've never been able to get it like I want it. :-)

I love the composition of the fourth shot. The colors and path of the stream are inviting, whether on not the saturation was right on.

Thanks for sharing!

hey jimbojetset!

nice series

to improve these to an even higher level, i'd like to point out a photoshop technique

by taking anywhere from 2 to 5+ shots, you can blend them in photoshop, to increase the Dynamic Range...

keeping detail from the deepest shadows to the brightest highlights...

www.luminous-landscape.comhas a tutorial on this...called Blending Exposures

one point you'd have to remember...a tripod is necessary, cuz the different exposures have to match up...

well, great shots, hope this helps

vito

I never get tired of seeing flowing water photgraphed like that! Every shots different, and each ones as exciting as the first time. Those are very good. Best regards,
