    The other thread is 'family snapshots' type stuff, these are the more artsy landscape shots I made. Lots of fog, lots of misting rain, so not a ton of photography opportunity in the day and a half we were there, but still got some good ones nonetheless:

    FWIW, those first two look a bit soft because they were handheld at relatively long exposures...

    Great work! Especially considering you hand held those. Shame on you for not having a tripod.

    I had the tripod on the 2nd day, but there was so much fog we couldn't even see the falls. :cry: The first night was just stretching the legs after being in the car for 8 hrs. Little did I know it'd be my only chance at good night shots of the falls. :?

    Ahh well, like Kel said--it gives us a good excuse to go back in a year or two!

    Sorry to bring back an old topic but what settings did you use for those first two photos. They both look great. I've been meaning to take some waterfall photos with longer exposures but haven't gotten around to it yet. Some tips as how to get that kind of look would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Did anyone else notice that the last picture says "Konica" and "Minolta" at the top of the tower? Was that intentional?

    As much as I like the falls pics, that last one is really great!

    Foggy, wet... made me shiver! :lol:
