    1) is pretty, but you lose some of the green on the left.

    2) The waterfall is very nice also. Maybe could stand having the reflection cropped out at the bottom.

    3, 4, 5) are very nice. I like the swooping whatever-it-is-plant.

    6) is my favorite, but the leaf on the left is washed.

    7) didn't come up for me. Can't see it.

    Thanks for sharing. I like that kind of environment- but without the humidity.

    Those are great, and I really like #2, but I'm a sucker for waterfalls. What were the settings on that shot?

    Ok, there's 7. That's one teeny-tiny subject. I'd like to see it larger. Looks good.

    Shutter: 1/8
    Aperture: F14
    Focal Length: 44mm

    This is one of my first waterfall photos where I successfully slowed the waterfall enough to get the silk effect.

    #2 is probably my favorite as well. Waterfalls are a lot of fun to shoot.

    For an even smoother 'silk' effect, you could wait until later in the evening when there's less light and use an even longer shutter speed. Or get an ND filter or two - that'll reduce the amount of light entering the lens and give you the same effect and allow you to use a longer shutter speed.

    Very nice!
