Went down the the national park on the weekend. Still taken with the Coolpix 4500. The first two had a shutter speed of somewhere around 1/4, while the second two are closer to 1/250. (I can look up all the exact details if you *really* want me to :p )

Can others edit my Photos
Photos OK to edit
I really love your DOF on the first 2. I say this cuz people tend to lean towards a very shallow one and the deep works really nicely here. good shutter speed also, neat effect.

Is there a really shallow DOF on the third one? If not I'd like to see this one w/ a really fast shutter speed to get stopped action, but u said it was 1/250 which should have stopped it

Is there any digital enhancement in the last one? Its just one of those things that looks like it is, tho I have this feeling its not.

great work

Nope, no enhancements to any of them except for a basic levels on the third (if my memory serves me correctly).

The last one was troubling me greatly, as I just couldn't get the camera to focus on the water. It kept wanting to put the reflected image in focus (this was with manual focus too). So then I switched the camera to full auto to allow it to auto focus, and the silly thing decided to fire the flash. I figured the shot was write off immediately after taking it, but when I got back home to the computer, it was the only one out of a dozen or so photos that was crisp and clear.

Oh oh, and the whirlpool was at the bottom of a shallow canyon with no direct sunlight.

don't suppose you've got a bigger copy of that last pic you could mail me have you? I'd love that on my mac desktop... :D
But of course. Share and share alike, thats my motto :p I'll upload a few different sizes to my site in the next few days and get back to you :)
