    i would have liked it better if you shot it at a faster shutter speed so the actual wheel wasnt blurry, other than that its good though

    Your slow shutter speed really enhances this one, giving the sense of movement that was actually there. Wonderful exposure. Of course, you don't need me to tell you that! :)

    I like all the 'verticals' in this also.

    I like the motion, but it's too short. A longer shutter in this shot would be interesting to see

    By longer shutter, do you mean slower shutter speed, so that there would be more blurring of movement?

    Thanks everyone for the comments.

    I did take it all three ways. The faster shutter one is kind of boring and it looks like the wheel isn't working...you lose the movement of the water as well.

    The really slow shutter speed is a) blurry because i didn't have a tripod with me and b) you can't see the buckets of the wheel.

    I felt that, as John pointed out, this was the best to capture the movement that was actually there.

    Thanks again everyone for the comments.
