A few more from my recent travels to West Virginia. K20D with DA*16-50mm

Rapids on the New River



This was a waterfall on the way to a historic railroad town called Thurmond. The drive during this colorful season was nothing short of spectacular. Used the Manfrotto 190XBPro tripod for this and the next image.



A close up of the same waterfall.



On a techincal note, the AWB setting on the K20D did not perform well. Setting it to the "Shade" setting produced much more pleasing results that reflected the warm Autumn shades. Direct access to WB (as found on the N D300 and C 40D) compared to the K20D's multi step access via the Function Button menu would have been nice!

It may have taken an extra step, but the results were worth it. Nicely done.

Thanks for posting. I particularly like #3 although all three are a pleasure to look at!

Hope you don't mind me adding my attempt at water in motion. I did a lot of PP on this one because the original didn't have enough water falling. See if you can figure out what is cloned and what is real.

Great shooting jelpee.

I really love the first one. A real sense of movement inthat one.



Glenn - another great shot - lets the eye wander, then drags it back in again.

I'm sorry I posted mine without any comments on yours. I like the final crop the best. It seems to have the perfect amount of water to offset the dark background. It has a really nice feel to it and makes you want to be there.
