How do they do that ???

I dunno', Dan...we'll have to get Dr. Science to answer this for us. ;)
This is a very cool capture. I figured it to be manipulated, but it's not! Really nice camera tricks.
I think you did enter it into the right category, because it isn't manipulated in any way. #328576

Thanks Joy. I was surprised when I down loaded this one. I didn't see the white streaks with my eye when I took the shot, or the blue in the falling water, but the sky was really clear and BLUE so I guess thats where the blue in the falling water come from. I forgot to enter the capture data before so I will as soon as I finish this. I was standing on a bridge with my hands braced on the hand rail to get the shot. #1967111

This is the actual capture not manipulated in any way other than slight contrast and saturation adjustment about 11 on the sliders, and sharpen a tad. This water was flowing over a small dam in an old mill race, and these leaves are just lying on the bottom and not moving. How do they do that? Entered in Special Effects, all camera tricks so don't know if thats right or not.
