Just started dabbling in landscape and I've enjoyed what little I've done. I'm impressed with some of your works here and enjoy viewing them. I've posted this pic on another board,and now,I've decidedto put it to the test here. This was a trip to East Tennessee the last week of October... and yet, the leaves were hardly turning at all. This was my first opportunity to photography a waterfall.

EDIT: Sorry, I changed my mind about which photo I was going to post AFTER I had the title of another already entered. Forgot to change the title, so it DOESN'T match the photo. Don't see a way to change it... so JUST IGNORE THE TITLE. (There's nothing like a big goof on my first time of posting is there!)

Thanks to both of you. I don't have a wide angle lens as of the current time. I suppose I have too many 'wants' and not enough 'bucks'. Had thought about a good sports lens as my next purchase, but I'm enjoying landscape so much, I'm just not sure what I want.

very nicely done, Gracie. excellent exposure and color. the rocks, etc., seem just a teensy bit 'soft' (more a personal taste thing on my part than anything else), but i love the way you've made the water look like a soft, delicate mist. has a very serene, 'Japanese garden' sort of feel to it.

Thanks everyone. I've still got a lot to learn, but I'm definitely addicted to photography at this point. I don't doubt there's some softness in the rocks. The closest thing I have to a wide angle isn't very 'wide'... nor is it extremely sharp. It's a 28-100 kit lens that came with my Maxxum 5 a couple of years ago. I have a Maxxum 7D right now, and have only purchased one good quality lens... but it's an 85mm, f/1.4... so I used the kit lens for this shot of course. Maybe I'll own a sharper wide anglesome day.

when you can afford it i recommend the tamron/km 17-35 2.8-4.. its a superb moderately wide lens that has a very useful focal range for alot of landscape duties..

Thanks for the recommendation. I was looking at the new Minolta 11-18mm, f/4.5 to 5.6 DT lens. Do you think the Tamron would be a better choice? I know nothing about the new ones really, so I'm unsure. The aperture ability sounds better on the Tamron.

Very Nice Picture, hope to see more. Nicely done on that waterfall. I feel your pain on the 28-100 kit lens that you are using with your 7D. I too have that challenge, but need to save for some better lenses. You do have the 85mm prime which I've read is pretty good.
