    After bieng teased in a previous post by Kev, he finally revealed a location or two of 'waterfalls'
    This is pretty much a intense as they get Davie, so, disappointed you shall be.... lol
    I unfortunately got to this location as it was getting very dark...... to put it into perspective, ISO 100, NO ND filter, f stop 7.1....... and it preselected a shutter speed of 8 seconds, so yeah, not much light to play with..... the second shot was a 20secs on f stop 9.....
    Admittedly these shots were not thought of greatly as time was ticking, I will have a revisit soon (maybe when the big freeze arrives) but I thought I'd post these average shots for now.

    Both very nice Dan. I ole the reflections in the first with the way the moving water has 'distorted' them. And the patterns in No 2 are great. On their own they would make a great abstract.

    I know Kev, Silly me, I knew I didn't have much life in it to be fair and I did happen to drive past the Salwarpe turn.... So I dived in. lol I do like a challenge tho Kev.

    Thanks Brian :)

    Cheers Pete, My intentions where just to get the fall in the distance of the shot, but when previewed and it died seconds after, I managed to see the swirl which I was suprised about. lol. then I called it a day.

    I went down to the water feature in pumps Kev..... got pretty muddy as you can imagine. lol

    Note in your homework diary

    'Dan tries but often falls short due to his eagerness to get the result often failing in simple tasks he makes the most of the situation and always produces good work, with a little attention to the finer details he could do well...........8 out of 10 for turning up'

    Hehe :D:D:D:D sorry Dan better than a Pughie detention :D

    Agree with Pete - the reflections in the water on #1 are really nice

    In fact both are excellent, and make great B&W images

    More please! :)

    Stunning water patterns in both, especially in #2! Longish exposure really helps to bring out the ripples here, brilliant :).

    It does get comical when Kev throws a few words of wisdom in the thread. Lol
