    Couldn't decide whether to put this in the nature section or here.

    Two pictures of a stream I took today. It was a tiny stream, a brook really and drop offs were the only place that had enough motion to do a long exposure. Not sure which one I like better so I posted both.

    In each case, the blurred water is hardly showing up -- I guess there wasn't enough motion to really get air bubbles flowing, so it's mostly transparent.

    I prefer the first one, but both of them are framed a bit oddly. The focus seems to be on the waterfall, but the second one has a lot of still water and distant leaves in it. The first definitely has more interest -- the leaves are interesting, especially with the clear water going over them -- but I do feel like the water is falling into nothingness at the bottom.

    Those are my first thoughts -- take them or leave them as you will! :)

    Mmm, good points dcclark. I am noticing now the water looks a bit odd being cut off like that.

    Thanks guys :)
