My opinion:

That looks like a hardscene to capture in the bright light. For the water to not be too bright the rocks must be too dark.

Maybe because of the sun or maybe because of a too slow shutter speed, the water appears more a blur than in motion.

Almost a very nice pic. Maybe a different time of day would allow you the right capture.

Rajiv..When you can... a Neutral density filter and in this case a Gradual Gray Neutral density filter willl help keep from blowing out the highlights! A polorizing filter can also help by blocking out the reflected light from the water. A very nice photo to me even without the filters! Keep it up!!

I have to admit, I'm a little bit surprised at the comments, that is an amazing shot! I think that the bright water adds to it. Only the top of the shot could use any work whatsoever (just a bit too much white). For the most part, that is one of the better shots I've seen, great work!

I think you're going right.

One thing: We allhave different monitors and all see slightly different contrasts and colors. In a different forum, someone said that all of my pictures were light and suggested that my monitor might be set too dark. I checked that and decided he was right and adjusted my monitor.

I like your picture above. I like therunning water and that it is light against the richly dark rocks and moss. But to me the detail of the water and rocksis obscured for the water being too light and the rocks too dark. It looks like the bright sunlight makes the contrast between light and dark too much for the camera to deal with.

You are correct there Domang and that was why I suggested a ND filter would help with it! Also you are correct about the monitor or gamma set up of differing monitors. Always good to check that from time to time. Photoshop and photoshop elements has the gamma correction program built in!
