    I recently became engrossed with the fluid, constant nature of water. I've tried to capture it as best I can here. I'd like some feedback, if you've got some. :thumbup:

    These two are my favorites of the water pictures. I would like to know what you think of these first two, specifically:

    nice shots, however you might want to try and increase the exposure time a bit. On my moving water shots I like to use one or two ND filters and a polorizer and try to get the exposure above 1-2 seconds.

    So the Great Falls don't get any "greater"? They really are this small in fact?

    Still nice to see and of this entire series I definitely like Photo 2 the best with regards to "rushing waters".

    i like number 2, but i think it would be better if you could see a little more around the water. i think it would help with the moving effect

    Nice work. Looks like a great place to shoot.

    The great falls get greater, i just don't have any good captures of them. :mrgreen:

    The great falls drop 76 feet over a distance of less than a mile with several 20-foot waterfalls.

    Here is a picture of the falls that I did not take:

    IMO #1...there is something distracting about the brick wall.
    For #2 I would suggest increasing exposure time as Wally said.
