CONGRATS William. How wonderful for you. #6407859

Dick Jenkins 4/29/2009 8:25:02 PM

Just a perfect exposure. Slow shutter for that special effect with the water, and perfect aperture to handle the bright and shaded areas. Does being a programmer and software developer help you get a handle on all these aspects?

Another exceptional image.
