    Re: Post Your Waterfalls

    I don't usually use longer lenses shooting waterfalls but I gave it a try last time I was out. I like having a foreground and background relationship rather than a tight image of the falls.

    Anyway, I set my aperture so as to get a shorter shutter speed to catch the water a little crisper than the soft creamy look I usually get. I think this was at 1/4. Taken with a 240mm G-Claron.

    I like this one a lot, and prefer the water this way. A trick I have yet to try is divide your exposure into 4 or 8 segments. For example, 1/4=4@1/15, or 1/4=8@1/30.

    Bryan, I like it as is.
    Not the usual milky way of water of nowadays!

    This looks really nice. The exposure time, for me, is close to perfect. You can still tell it's "water." :-)

    I really like that one, Corran. I prefer to see a bit of texture in the water because it shows fluid movement rather than looking like textureless fog. The overall textures and tones are lovely. I like the composition too, though I usually prefer to see where the water lands.

    Re: Post Your Waterfalls

    Thanks guys. Yes, the water (especially the arching bit to the left) is what interested me and I'm glad I did a shorter exposure time.

    Steve - I tried doing the multiple exposure trick just recently. Check out the second image in my last post in the medium format b&w thread. I did 4 exposures of 1/4 each to get the requisite 2 second needed time. It came out pretty well.

    Bryan I wondered about that. That shot has more depth/contour to the water than one done the standard way.

    From the details left in the water, it looks like a sub-second exposure indeed... not very common in large format in the woodland. Beautiful, thanks!
