    Hi Jeff, I wrote this a while back, and a few other people have added their suggestions to it as well. Feel free to use it in the group if you wish.

    This is a really cool idea. I’ll start off with one of my shots.
    its called ‘McKensie falls 1’
    I shot the image a few months ago on photography-camp in the Grampians in Victoria. If you are ever looking for somewhere beautiful to go to take some shots… thats a GREAT start.

    I shot this image with a relatively long lens, at f29 for 1.3 secs. This gave me a nice flattening to the rocks which helped in the framing, and gave me a sufficient exposure to blend the cascading water but without losing all of it’s detail into what i call ‘halo’-ing. I finally made it black and white in photoshop (NOT ON MY CAMERA) because this way i could tune the individual colors till i had a black and white that i was happy with.

    My second shot was at the same place, but a little further down the falls.

    For this shot, i used the same aperture (f29) but went for a slightly longer exposure of 4 seconds. As you can see, that little bit extra of an exposure has added to the ghosting and makes the water look like a much smoother softer ‘cloud’. I used a slightly shorter lens on this image which gives it more depth by giving a bit of a wider angle.
    I’m not as happy with the second image, even after i added some dodging and burning digitally because the lower thrid of the image seems to lack interest. i think if perhaps i had burnt it more it would have a bit more impact.

    now i’m going to hit post and hope that the images above work. Also, feel free to tear what i said to bits, im sure the idea of this is to generate a discussion, and you cant have a decent discussion without some criticism.
