I shot this one again and tried to implement any suggestions I've received on here.

I like this one much better. In my opinion a picture like this one tells a story. By adding the source of the rushing water. (upper right hand) You now see the entire story and it makes much more sense. Much better.

At first I didn't followed exactly what you wanted and was thinking you wanted the stop motion thing, then I realized you wanted to see the rushing motion so I adjusted my shutter speed just for you. :-) Thanks for the previous suggestions.

I didn't have much directional lighting at this spot today so I used a little fill flash to get a bit of shine from the rocks.

Ah yes, I like this one much better. No need to brighten this one up. :-)

Edit: noticed just a little hint of motion blur on the leaves just above where the water is flowing from. Not the fault of the photographer, just wind not cooperating.

WRONG! It's the fault of the photographer.I decided to desharpen it a little to see what it looked like. I saved and posted it here before I realized I forgot to undo it.:-)

I'm glad you mentioned the wind not cooperating. I was using a slow shutter speed and never once considered other elements in the scene moving. I guess I was just lucky this time that a big gust of wind didn't ruin the shot.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Rodney

Oh, ok. At first I wasn't sure if it was wind and thought about whether you blurred it on purpose. It didn't look like natural motion blur.

But I knew you used a slow shutter and being this time of the year, wind is always a problem.

LOL..It was a mat, but everyone else called it a border and a frame so I gave in and said frame.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts....I worked on those rocks for ya!
