I was hoping for some spring green colours when I visited my usual riverbank hunting ground last weekend, but it looks like I was there too soon! Had to settle for the usual rushing water shot instead: you could almost jump across the river here, although I wouldn't recomend trying :G

Very nice pic

I really like the effect of the water.

I don't suppose you'd care to share the setting you used Please.

I would like to get the same effect by using the camera but then again i would have to find some water ha ha ha.

did you use a tripod for this shot or was it handheld.

Thanks for the comments chaps.

Bodge: it was 1 second at f8, three shots stitched together with autostitch, polariser and 4x neutral density filter on the camera. And yes, I used a tripod :-)

Thanks John for the settings

Many Thanks

Hi John,

Another good shot from you!!

Quick question, why stitch 3 shots rather than shooting wide angle????

I am pleased to say that I have just picked up a new 17-70mm Sigma lens with internal focusing so at last I can use a circular polarising filter...... yay!!!!!

Will try to get something posted soon as I have been really bad recently (work been taking me to Scotland and Finland - such a hard life!!!).

Mark

Awesome as usual, John. The colors are nicely saturated. I just got an ND filter and fromthe description of the settings you used, I think it will help me out with over exposure shots when there islots of water.

Thanks for the comments chaps.

Mark: I stitched this one just to get some extra pixels really, doesn't make much difference at this size, but you can see the effect in a print. I guess it's time to get a decent camera :-) I look forward to your pics of Scotland and Finland - at least I hope you have some they sure are photogenic destinations !

John.

I wish that I had time to get some done..... to much travelling and lots of meetings!!! I can show you some shots out of an aircraft window but thats about it.

Helsinki airport was amazing as it is surrounded by trees making it like no other international airport I have flown into (well actuallyStockholm was similar).
