Series of waterfalls at the entrance to Texas Wild exhibit at the Ft. Worth Zoo.
Wow...awesome shot. Nice work on this one. :thumbup: :thumbup:
beautiful shot...very calming, relaxing...would love to dangle my toes there...
i dont see any way to improve on it...great great shot...
Thanks you two!
I set the shutter speed at 1/30. Do you think there is enough blur in the water? I didn't have my tripod with me, so I didn't really dare to go much slower, for fear of my unsteady hands. LOL!
i like the composition, but the foreground water is blown way out.
How to control this?
Should I have metered for the foreground? Or crop it out all together?
In this situation, it is always good to take a few shots. People in general, like to be conservative and not take too many shots of one subject. This is true especially on trips like the zoo as you want to make sure you have enough film or memory and not run out. In this case, you would want to take a few shots bracketing as you go. I have at times gone through entire rolls on one scene changing settings and filtering. A neutral density filter is a nice tool to have for these settings as they allow you to use slower shutter settings in bright light. In most of these settings a tripod ( as you mentioned ) is a must. A monopod is not perfect, but better then just a hand hold. This image is a perfect candidate for PS to obtain the look you were going for. OTE?
For sure, show me what you've got.
Smudged, exposure adjusted a tad and a bit of diffuse glow. Did I over do it? It's really easy for me to get carried away in PS.
nice shot! i like the original, but i like the effect of water movement, great colours and composition.
Cool! I like it.
How did you delineate between the water and not water to smudge and diffuse it?
I love the original best but the edited version is good too ....
tranquil mood picture ...
