Description

Another shot from Rock Castle Creek and our delightful visit with Darren. Thanks again for the tips and the hosting Darren. I just liked the way the leaves were resting on the rock with all the water rushing by. Did some minor tweaking to make the details pop a little more.

Beautiful image Marcie, you got the water so soft and smooth, really makes the hardness of that rock stand out. #182905

Darren K. Fisher October 28, 2004

LOL we are thinking a lot alike today. My post is something a lot like this. You done an awesome job here Marcie. Great exposure and well composed composition. You do have a great eye for water shots. #874341

Wow Marcie, Darren must be a great teacher, because this looks just like one of his photos.
Beautiful detail, color and veiling.
Just excellent!!

Marcie A. Fowler October 28, 2004

I know . . . just too funny!! Wow you couldn't have paid me a better compliment either. But I must say you need to take some of the credit being the teacher and all. Every time I shoot this little voice, that sounds like you, repeats advice on composition that you gave me some time ago. Glad to see it seems to work!! #874361

Paul Michko October 28, 2004

Wow!!! Way cool image, Marcie. #874374

Marcie A. Fowler October 28, 2004

Thanks Bill and Paul for your wonderful comments. How encouraging.

Bill . . . WOW you couldn't have paid me a better compliment. Don't know if you've seen Darren's for today but if not you should check it out and you might get a chuckle. We were on the same wavelength this morning apparently. #874380

Diane Dupuis November 04, 2004

I Love It!!
What settings did you use?
What tips do you and Darren have for someone who may just be starting out in water!? #889377

Marcie A. Fowler November 04, 2004

Thanks so much Diane. Let's see I think the settings were at f/18 or so and about a 2 second exposure. Used a tripod, which from Darren tells me are the typical settings for a water shot. Use a polarizer and a tripod and practice, practice, practice. Darren can give better instruction I'm sure but that's pretty much it in a nutshell. #889577
