sokol, great scenery and colours, I would suggest a tripod or rock to steady the camera to reduce camera shake when shooting around 0.4 sec.

Although this is to get the milky water look, in this case for me the water is the focus of the shot and not the beautiful colours and you can see camera shake. Canada has some fantastic autumn colours.

I would not shoot this at f29 in aperture mode, look at the tutorial on "Blurring water for a creative effect" on the forum.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

also i hear using an ND filter is a must for these kind of shots (assuming you didn't use one?) , which i have yet to try. i would of thought that will be in the "Blurring water for a creative effect" on the forum as 4xxx said but nice pics anyway!

Im not sure but I think the last one might be photoshopped a little.

The last one is a personal preference, I did one of our garden which did not turn me on. My wife loved it and now we have a 12 x 10 photo framed on a wall. :)


Cheers

I disagree about always using shutter priority, while shooting in Niagara a few months ago, I used some pretty show shutter speeds. To do that, I needed to lower my exposure comp., lower my ISO, and close my aperture and I was still getting shots with only 1/20 of a second or so. Of course, I didn't have a ND filter on. But even if I did shoot in shutter priority, I wouldn't be able to get any slower shutter speeds.

Getting back on topic, I love the first. The second is nice, but I'm not sure what I think about the bridge up top, or the green paint on the rock. I'm not sure what I think of the third, I've never been a fan of the sketch post processing. Do you have the original photo before the edit? We'd love to see it.

I think these all have the potential to be nice shots, the thing that distracts me the most though is all the painting on the rocks. If you use photoshop maybe try to clone them out? And maybe crop the bridge out of the 2nd? Looks like a great place!
