Nice one Tim,did you try any other exposure lengths? I think something around 1.5 secs here would show more detail/motion in the falling water-just a thought but this is great anyway. #773028

Wow! A beautiful capture! #4997986

Tim Heimel October 29, 2007

Thank you Jason and Tiia! I did not alter exposures - simply stopped down for depth of field and let the camera determine time. Thanks for the advice - digital "film" is cheap and it would be interesting to see the difference the exposure time makes. #4998627
