I love this stuff... waterfalls looking all dreamy I suppose you are over the moon with your new tripod can you let us know what settings you used.

Thank you for comment! Dreamy effect U can get by setting camera for longer exposure (shutter speeds like 1/8, 0.5, or 1 second).

Cheers!

They're great Drazen! I really like #2 with the big waterfall effect. I've made a note of your settings too because every time I try and do these, I always screw them up! I always thought you needed a really long exposure time of like 5 seconds plus....guess I need to experiment more :)

Great photos!! Look like you're making good use of your tripod :D

The long expose effect you can get with water is beautiful. Keep up the good work.

Hi.
I liked #2 and #3. In my opinion, the exposure in #1 is not long enough. In 1/8 sec the water didn't "move" enough to make a better mist effect.
ChinaMark - you don't always need such a long exposure, depends on the amount of water. If there is a lot of water, long exposure will give you a "white block" and not the mist effect. I really like this kind of effect and also ruined quite a lot of pictures.
Here are 2 of my favorite pictures (hope it will work):
ISO: 100
Exposure: 1.3 sec
Aperture: 16
Zoom: 28mm
Image

ISO: 100
Exposure: 4 sec
Aperture: 22
Zoom: 18mm
Image

Liron.
