Excellent. I love the silky water, the muted but rich colour and the composition.

Wow, that is one awesome shot, do you think you could tell me what you did to capture the water like that?

Sure Julia I would be more than happy to help you out. First off you want an overcast day and a somewhat shady area. I also use a polarizer to make it a bit darker. Also helps knock off glare on rocks. I used a setting of about f/16 and 10sec. here. But that is using Velvia at an ISO rating at 40. When using an 100iso film your sec. will be a bit shorter but can still get the same effect. Make sure you use a tripod and maybe a cable release or your timer. Hope this helps and if you have any more questions feel free to email me.

VERY WELL DONE, BEAUTIFUUUUUUUUULLLLLL !! I love here the strong colors and the great contrast and sharpness when you had a long exposure time (how long?).

This is an absolutely beautiful photo, Darren! A great scene, very nicely composed and the exposure resulted in just the right amount of light and veiling. Very nicely planned and executed! Congratulations so far, but I'm sure I'll be congratulating you again soon :-)
