And you went back for a great snag of it, Bits.

Did you have a reason for the settings that you used here?

Hi n1w - Thanks! I was playing around trying to figure out what long-ish shutter speed worked best for waterfalls, and having only a polarizing filter to use as an ND filter, it meant getting a tiny aperture. I figured that might at least help get more DOF. But lol, I think this particular one was also hand-held.

Ok, makes sense. Thanks for satisfying my snoop.

Well done! Your longish shutter speed did a nice job of conveying a sense of motion. Beautiful shot with the whitewater and the fall colors.

BTW, Kamaly, Bit-n-Pieces, alter-egos?

Thanks mysterybay! yes, 'kamaly' is my main page, and this one was intended to be for the details, quirky things, odds and ends and overflow shots, though over time the lines have gotten blurred somewhat. Now that we're back to 32 photos per page, I'm trying to have more of a difference between the pages. The main difference is that the 'kamaly' shots seem to get more views, lol.

Thanks Bruce! I do - the Nikkors have 'vibration reduction' in the new lenses, which helps a lot. But probably the biggest difference was having someone recommend using the delay timer on slow shutter hand-held shots. It really works!

Hi Bits, I had meant to put my version which is not a patch on yours, but something went wrong in the upload. Your colours are brighter and I love the effect of the cascade.

Great shot & Y*! I am a little slow- just now putting your two sites together:))

Thanks marbiz - well, this one is from my second trip the following week, when the sun actually peeked through! I guess the dark cloudiness the 29th is why I haven't posted many photos of that day. And n1w has inspired me to try different shutter speeds for flowing water, to try to figure out the different effects you get as the exposure gets longer...

Thanks JF ! Apologies...I forget that it's not obvious to everyone. But you could always use the sticky organizational solution not1word depends on! :D

(third try at this comment! It sure better work this time!)

WoW Bits this is a mighty fine photo, the water flowing like milk, the beautiful background as a bonus, and I read this is hand held, my congratulations to you YS

Warm Wishes, Karen.
