I did post this in my original "I'm Back" thread and have decided to repost with the new edit to get more comments. I think don't know if people were expecting a pic in the original post.

I am thinking of printing this up to a reasonable size to use as a poster pic for the lounge room. (maybe even sell a couple of prints?? is it pleasing enough to want?)

Any suggestions would be welcome.

I just realised the pic could do with a bit of adjustment to the levels. does this enhance the pic?

Really, really nice. Great composition and good use of the slow shutter speed. On my work laptop it looks better in the first edit but it could just be the screen. I think it would look very good on the wall.

Welcome back dude. I like this image. I agree it is definately one for hangin' on the wall. What settings did you use to get the water looking like that? (No exif data).

How was Hawai?

Thanks for your comments everyone. I am hoping the I can enlarge to about 24" in width to frame and hang on the wall.

I am glad I got this one (to play with)as at the moment alot of my other photos are currently inaccessable due to my cousin burn them on to disk for me. The only problem is that she had a mac and I have a PC. Need to go to the store and see if they can reburn the CD for me.

As for the exif data:

80 ISO

1 sec exposure

f 11

I also used the 2 second timer to avoid camera shake. I ended up taking quite a few until I got the timing right to have water spilling over in the bottom left corner. My only real regret is that I forgot to take it as a RAW file. I was actually in a rush but I really wanted this pic. All in all, not bad to a quick snap. LOL

Has anyone got or tried a program call "Image Analyzer"? It is a freeware program and I decided to try it out on this resized version of my pic. I only downloaded the program tonight and I am not sure I have enough memory to do a full size pic file.

I thought the results were good given the program did not have a lot of information to beging with (due to being resized for web use)
