Terry McCully 7/7/2003 11:35:59 AM

Gary, I have no idea how I missed this one first time around...I'm trying this blurr effect on my own right now..You did a great job here!..Love the smooth water! #135971

Gary W. Lake 7/7/2003 12:53:48 PM

Thanks Terry - I think it's impossible to see them all. Every time the finalists come out I see all kinds of shots I missed during the month! I love shooting running water. I used both a neutral density filter and a polarizing filter on this one, plus it was actually pretty dimly lit because the forest canopy was so thick, but the slow shutter speed gives it a lot of light. This was a 30 second exposure. #136069

Dick van Breda 7/7/2003 2:02:42 PM

Cathy Barrows 7/7/2003 6:28:58 PM must of been very dark...i have trouble not getting hotspots when I use a 6nd and a polarizer #136593

Gary W. Lake 7/7/2003 6:52:41 PM

Thanks again Cathy. It was indeed dark. Even so I still got some washed out spots right at the bottom of the little rapids but it didn't really seem to hurt the image. I kind of like the effect actually, as long as it's not too distracting. #136674

Dolores Neilson 7/7/2003 7:17:24 PM

Took this mid-morning shot on the way to Spruce Knob recently. The light reflecting from the trees seemed to turn the surface of the water green.
