Hi Stefan, JJ & Square One - yes, you are completely correct about the fast moving water. Did not even think that it would make a difference when taking the shot, and these were amongst the firt shots that I took. I will keep that in mind next time. A lot of the shots I chucked were really over-exposed as it took me a while to figure out what I was doing. Thanks for the tips and keep the advice coming.

I can't be a critical judge, never even tried taking this type of picture, JJ has taken these before, and I can see the white blow-out he talks about in #1 & #2

#3 is showing just a little blow out, if like you said, you used F8, then only a faster shutter speed would reduce the amount of light seen by the camera.

Did you keep the camera in auto focus? My tries with manual focus failed.

Hi Everyone - thanks you so so sooooooooooooo much for all the excellent advice, tips and for taking the time to look and give feedback - it really is appreciated and I always try to put the advice into practise.

Phil - I have the same f8 aperture limit on the FZ45 and was actually going to ask if there is anyway to push this up further - so thanks for the filter tip. Looks like I will have to get one.

Rui - I'm so pleased you liked No.5 - it was my fave as well even though it is over exposed in places. I really liked the effect it had on the water too.

Once again, a HUGE THANKS to all you lovely folk around the world
