    A few shots from the Whakatane river mouth after some serious rainfall over the past days. Here is my photoblog of what I saw I guess.

    No problem Ron, my time machine still had a fully charged flux capicitor and I was able to carry out your request.

    I think 4,5 & 6, definately have the biggest impact on me personally. Even though I really like the idea behind #2 great pictures!

    I love 1,2,3 and 7. Great images. Not a fan of the black and white really. At first I thought I liked it but Im not sure. On the fence. I think the whirlpool shot would be a good high contrast black/white. Either way some really good captures.

    Number 2 and 3 are my favorite. Think you could explain how you took it? ie. Shutter speed and f/ and such? I also like the black and white, it carry's on the theme of a storm. Dull and sad.

    +1

    I especially like #3, the SLIGHT blur on the waves give a cool effect and there are points of interest in the foreground, middle and background. The color of the water is pretty sweet as well.

    nicely done! love these pictures and you can even frame some of these! BTW, can't view your EXIF data but did you use any long exposure, more than 3 sec on any of these? If so, is it the time of the day that makes them how they are or did you use any ND filters?

    Thanks, see below.

    Thanks.

    For Number 2:
    Canon 500D/ T1i
    Canon EF-S 18-55mm Kit lens @18mm
    f/13
    2 second exposure
    ISO 100
    2 second self timer
    Cokin P type graduated ND filter + ND8 filter + CPL filter.
    Manually focussed using live view 10x.

    For Number 3:
    Canon 500D/ T1i
    Canon EF-S 18-55mm Kit lens @20mm
    f/8
    1/4 second exposure
    ISO 100
    2 second self timer
    Cokin P type graduated ND filter + ND8 filter + CPL filter.
    Manually focussed using live view 10x.
    Plus on camera flash for a little fill on the foreground rocks.

    Just a "natural" eddy there Ron, the water is hauling ass, 300mm of rain in 24 hours or so, by the time we got there the water level had dropped by over a metre. I estimated that over the 2 hours we were there it dropped another 4 inches.
