    Those are some amazing shots! Awesome colours and love the technique. The forth shot though is my pick of the bunch, the light is enchanting.

    I love the water shots :) The trees in the second one look like they're out of Lord of the Rings or a Tomb Raider film, nice work.

    Gorgeous shots, but #6 looks a bit off-kilter.

    If these had numbers, it'd be easier to say, but I think it is the fourth photo which I like best of the series (even though that one does not feature any running water). Of the running water ones, I really like the third before last. I like that one much better than the first where I feel the water is a touch too white and too silky.

    thanks for all the nice comments :) Check out my gallery(look in my sig) I have several other shots from the vacation, I just didn't want to overload the thread with that many photos.

    yea, I believe I've fixed it on my computer, i just haven't uploaded it.

    they all have titles in the lower right hand corners ;)

    It was unfortunate, you'll notice in the last two photos, it was very overcast, the 4 days I was there it was like that the whole time. then on he last day we were there packing up, of course, it was bright and sunny hardly a cloud to be seen :thumbdown:

    Nice set. Is it Gatlinburg?

    I like the 5th and 6th shots a lot, the water looks so smooth. Did you use a slow shutter speed for that? What was it?

    Nice series. I love the mountains. I was in the Pisquah Nat'l Forest this past October.

    I'm seeing purple/magenta in the water in #1 & 6.

    Yep, it's very near Gatlinberg. Gatlinberg is right next to the National Park. I'm not a big fan of the cities nearby the Park, they are a bit too flashy for me, too much shopping and magic shows and other entertainment for my taste. I like the quaint towns better.

    When Summer Ends: 4sec shutter speed, f/22
    Serenity: 2sec shutter speed, f/14

    that was intentional actually, I added a touch for character :p

    I have Canon Rebel XT and used a Tamron 28-300mm lens. Not the best lens, but it's what I could afford. Many of these photos would have been a lot better if I had a better lens. I've gotten a few poster prints of various ones from this trip and they look okay from a distance, but when you get up close you can see the quality in the lens wasn't the best.
