    This is 1sec at F32 on Ilford Ortho+. I like the amount of movement and texture in the water, especially the web of light between the stumps here.

    Love the complexity and the tonal range captured in this image. The highlights and movement of the water is equally interesting. A composition most would not consider, preferring the larger 'scape'. Great work.

    Thank you!
    I am definitely part of the most who wouldn't normally consider a shot like this, but am trying to stretch myself in that way. Next is using shallower depth of field.

    I like the 1s exposure here, you get sense of the movement in the water without loosing all the texture.

    Reflections II by tthef, on Flickr

    Intrepid Mk IV, S-K Symmar 210/5.6, yellow-green filter, f/32@14s (1 stop reciprocity failure compensation and 2/3 stop for the filter) on Fomapan 100, developed in Fomadon Excel 1+1 (6.5 min manual rotation). Back and front tilt and front swing to get both the foreground and the tree at the far end of the loch into focus. A half-stop gradient over the top half in CaptureOne.

    The Y-G filter didn't work out as I wanted (was hoping for more separation in the background), and the extra exposure time needed resulted in the water being too much smoothed out for my liking. I have another sheet without the filter, but unfortunately there was a gust of wind during the exposure, leaving the foreground smudged (and not enough smudged).

    Just posted this over on the 5x7 thread, but it sort of belongs here, although I was not quite on the creek's edge...more out in it, but I suppose a small island of gravel has water edges, too.

    Taken on my way out from a two-night backpack trip. I had rain from pre-dawn to 11 or so...the rain was one of the reasons I was out there -- first of the season. Just earlier I had a 2' dia tanoak crash down in front of me (25 yards or so) and most of the morning I could hear water ladened, but drought weakened branches, falling a couple hundred feet here and there. No or low wind. Besides the fact it was still raining inside the redwoods groves, I kept to the creek bed. But I was rewarded with still air and water when I arrived at this spot...a scene I had been looking at on many previous backpacks in.

    Vaughn, I really like the complexity there, and that the view of the skyline is better defined in the reflection than in itself.

    This one below made me want a longer lens... a bit too much dead space on the lower right for me and lots of good crops to be made

    That is so cool! Love the details of the cormorants and the contrast they create.

    Thanks!. I should have titled this "Colony" instead of "Breading Grounds". It's certainly a nice spot the colony found for themselves with a rocky uplift which is reminiscent of a bedroom headboard to protect from a direct coastal wind and a flat area to gather - almost as if they managed to somehow commandeer a bull dozer to level it.
