Light In Motion
A half second of action captured forever by the photographer.....who was very wet after this particular endeavor. Goodbye to Velvia, this was the last image I captured on 35mm film. The exposure was 1/6 second at F16. A 2-stop hard grad controled the direct lighting.

Nice capture, Marc! Love the color and the slow shutter to capture to highlight water movement.

Bob, This is Seal Rocks State park. Thanks for the comment. Gary, my Canon 5D offers a useable resolution far exceeding what I get from 35mm scans and prints comparable to my Medium Format work. It's truly amazing. Since film is so expensive, I think the switch to digital is final for me.....unless I decide to get a 4x5 or 8x10 system as a novelty someday when I can afford it!
