FZ3 handheld with Hoya ND8. From Matthiessen State park in Illinois this weekend.

Unfortunately I didn't have a tripod with me so these are all handheld. Not that easy for me with such slow shutter speeds. I did brace myself agains some rock face walls but that only went so far.

This one is straight from the camera...only resized.

Thanks! It took about 10 tries to get one I was happy with.

Great job on all. My order of preference: #2 followed by #3 and finally #1.

Nice shots esp #2, and those being handled too. I've yet to be able to achieve anythig like that yet.

Cheers

Very nice for hand-held. I like for #2 the best, but I find the sticks in the foreground to be distracting. I'm a big fan of waterfall shots. You and I both need to pick up a decent monopod. Would make it easier to get the right shot.

Thanks everyone!



mtritt - Yeah, I don't like those in the shot either but that's the best I could do with the location. I actually have an OK tripod but didn't plan well enough to bring it...next time for sure:-)

Troy personally I like the limbs in the forground of #2. However (nit picking) if it were possible I would have shifted the zone of sharp focus to the rocky ledge behind the falls rather than the limbs to tone them down just a bit.

But all in all I do very much like the shot and am envious of it. Makes me want to get up from the puter and go out looking for a waterfall. Thanks for sharing. Bob
