    Hey ppl this is my first attempt at shooting rivers with a grad filter, i tried to get some different shots than your standard 'water flowing down rocks'. this involved gettin a bit wet but it was fun :D (and cold)

    1: ISO 100, Av 8.0, Tv 1/4 i didnt use the filter on this one

    2: ISO 100, Av 8.0, Tv 1.6 using tripod and cokin ND8 (4 stops)

    after viewing them a few times i think the second is better but lemme know what you think - i would love some feedback :)

    NB: these are shot on canon 400d with 17-85 IS USM lens

    I think 2 is way better, 1 does nothing for me. But in 2 I almost wish you could get those rocks under water a little sharper. Not sure if thats at all possable with the water moving like that...but just a little observation. Love the way the water spills out in all directions. The more I look at it the more I like it lol

    Those rocks aren't gonna get any more "sharp" because they appear to be out of the DOF. An unsharp mask applied in PS shows this:

    they look a tad dark to me .... the second one is by far better than the first one, the composition makes the difference here.

    The second one looks really good. The flowing water is beautiful.
    Not much for the first.

    I prefer the 2nd, better composition than the first. Nice shots though.
