And finally from the same location as #2, but a wider angle:

I hope you've all had a good Christmas break!

Regards,

John.

Very nice shots, John. I like the 3rd one best as it has even more of a 3-dimensional feel to it.

All are nice. #3 is dynamic, one can almost feel and hear the rushing water.

Hi John! I love your photos of this area, I think the first would be my favorite of the set. I just really like the way you composed this one!

John,

Very nice. Tell me, are you using some filters to get the exposure long enough for the blur effect or is it dark enough?

There is something here, don't we all agree?

Thanks for all the kind words everyone!

Bill: yes I use filters, although to honest at this time of year just stopping down is enough to get a reasonably slow exposure. I usually use a 4x neutral density filter and a polariser. The polariser I adjust to cut out as much glare and reflection from the water's surface as I can - provided the water's not too disturbed this usually allows some of the riverbed to show through. With those two filters the exposure times were between 4 and 6 seconds at f8 (as small as my digicam will go).

HTH, John.
