    Which do you prefer? Also c&c welcome.

    This is Sabbaday Falls a very popular spot off the Kancamagus Hwy in the NH White Mountains which is one of my all time favorite places to be. These were hand held no Nd filter, Xt2 with the 18-55 at 21mm. The slow shutter was a 1 sec exposure at f/22, ISO 320. The other was at 1.500, f/4.5, ISO 4000

    Slow

    Both nice, but I prefer the 1/500 exposure image. I think the sharper water looks more interesting as it shows more details of the turbulence and flow

    Wow, that’s an amazing handheld 1 second shot. I don’t see any camera shake. My vote is that one.

    My vote is for the second one also. Shame about the people in the upper right of the image.

    Beautiful spot! I know it's not, but the leaning rock face really messed with me. I kept wanting to tilt my screen. LOL personally I prefer the slow, because it seems to have just a tad more richer color, detail in the shadows and less noise. Also less people in the slow.

    I like both. I really prefer the slow, silky water but sometimes the water stopping fast shutter is good, especially with things like close ups of fountains.

    #1 for me, even though usually I don't like slow speed water.

    I preferred the way the water looks in the shot that was made at 1/500 of a second. I preferred to see a little bit more of the character of the water flow, which is up skewered pretty much in the cotton candy look that one second gives a stream of this volume and velocity.
