Default Waterfall in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts



This is also the site of the Ancient Glacier Potholes. They vary in size from 6 inches to 39 feet in diameter. But the water is more exciting to photograph.

By the way, this is my first time shooting a waterfall situation. I tried to get a balance between the power of the water (after lots of recent rain and melting snow) and a silky water effect. I have longer exposed shots where the water looks too much like cotton. I used the camera's built in ND filter to achieve a longer exposure but not an overexposed shot.

Camera Model: Canon PowerShot G5
Shutter speed: 1/6 sec
Aperture: 4.0
Exposure mode: Tv
Flash: Off
Metering mode: Evaluative
Self-timer: 2 secs
ISO: 50
White balance: Daylight

I love this Joshua and nice settings though. I played with friend's G5 two days ago and I liked it. The evaluative wb is very good and easy to reach (by one button). Now I think I'll program my C5050 programmable button to the same function.
I don't get to see much waterfalls here, but there is one very popular and beautiful in the north-western part of my country. I'll go there in the spring, it's worth 3 hours drive.

I think I must learn to use evaluate white balance because I normally take a lot of snow pictures.

Hi all
JoshuaB, I really like the green tinge to the waterfall. The softness and the way you've captured the water is excellent in my view. Well done!
