Love the colors, love the water. I have not learned how to create that effect with water yet, still trying. Would help to carry a tripod, I'm sure.

Dave - Glad you enjoyed these - and thanks for taking time to comment!

Hans - Thanks so much, and thanks also for the feedback!

Dr. C - Glad you enjoyed the water & leaves...
Tripod is just about necessary for slow water shots, although you can brace against a tree if needed. I try to get shots like these on dark damp days, using a polarizer to cut glare off the wet rocks (vary it some for a little bit of glare...), using lowest ISO and smaller f-stop, to result in a slow shutter speed. Usually will bracket the f-stops to get a variety of slow shutter speeds - best speeds seem to depend on water flow rate.

Mole, you are truly the master of these creamy waterfalls. Your exposures are in most instances just perfect. I wanted to do this at Iguazu with the K7 using multiple exposure setting but could not use my tripod due to narrow walkways and high tourist volume.

Mole, great shots as usual! I was looking at the exif (I try to do this for a lot of shots) for some of them and was curious how you got such great pics using Av, f/14, 3", etc. My assumption would have been that f/14 or f/13 would not have given you 3'" or 4" shutter speed. Obviously shows what assuming will do. Glad you posted how you achieve this.

Lou - Indeed a tripod sure can get in the way in a crowd, but it sure is hard to do multiple exposures without one... Your falls pictures were great anyway!!

Tsquare - Exif sure is handy! Glad you enjoyed these, and hope they'll be of some help.

Pboerger - Glad you liked the trip!
