Beautiful work. By the angle, make me feel like I'm there with my feet in the water. #240605

Melinda G. Mendez April 25, 2005

Would be very nice of you if you could share the settings of your camera when you took this shot. What was the weather that day? Lastly, what type of lens did you use? Thank you in advance! #1289492

Ed Heaton April 25, 2005

Thanks, Nemil,
I was on a large rock in the middle of the stream :-)

Hi Melinda,
I'm happy to share the setting with you on this particular image! Please keep in mind that my settings my not be the settings that you would use! Each photographer has their own style and different equipment. This image was shot at sunset right after the sun dipped below the mountain ridge - therefore making it in full shade. I made the image with a 35-second exposure, and the aperture was at f/22 with a 6 stop ND filter. The lens I used for this image was a Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8.
I hope this helps. #1290738

Melinda G. Mendez April 25, 2005

Thank you very much! At least I can start somewhere. By the way, this is a beautiful image. Thanks for the inspiration. #1290800
