Great work Jay. The composition is excellent and so is the dof and the shutter speed chosen. You have some stunning shots in your gallery and I am surprised some of them didn't make the finals. #4384310

Alex T. Mizuno June 10, 2007

I'm sorry, I was so hasty and careless. In my previous comment, I meant to say "Can you please share the shooting data, please?"

I agree with Peter. I'm also surprised some of your fantastic works did not get the finals. #4384329

This photograph was taken with a Canon 5D & Canon 17-40 F4L lens. Exposure for this shot was 4s@F16. A circular polarizer was used to eliminate reflection from the wet rocks and bring out the colors and clarity in the water. Thank you all for the comments on this photograph. #4385088
