Pretty wild, Jim! Nice job on this. Right out of Star Trek.

Hi jjdog2,

nice pic and title !

Another variation might be possible that might even be more effective. I see that you used ISO 400, 1/100, f5.6 @ 18mm. You might try the same shot with a much slower shutter speed to smooth out the water, both from the waterfall and in the pool. You have room in your exposure for f11 to give you two extra stops or even f16 for 3 stops, ISO 200 for another stop, and lengthen the shutter speed to about 1/10 or 1/5 to give you the same exposure. With SR, 1/10 could be done handheld as it's only about a stop under the 1/FL (1/18 handholding Rule of thumb), but you'd have to use pretty good handholding technique).

You could also use an ND or Polarizing filter with the camera tripod mounted to extend the exposure time even longer.This would give the scene a more ethereal look, and might be more effective, I would think.

. . . or not -- the shot is pretty nice as it is. . .

Scott

I guess they'd just beamed up and you missed them. I'm sure you would have a follow up shot of the crew if they were beaming down. Interesting shot.

Thanks all and I appreciate the feedback Scott. No tripod so could not go that low on the shutter. It's a difficult just to say on your feet at the Cave's in the winter.

This is Ash Cave in the Hocking Hills region in Ohio.

A wonderful looking spot! Love the picture and your title is very cool, too.

I'll have to keep Scott's idea in mind next time I'm somewhere that would have this type of potential. Not sure I can hand-hold slow enough but I can always try.
