    I have to admit I've got a bit of a thing for photographing Waterfalls, I must spend ages trying out different shutter speeds and angles because more often than not I eventually find I'm standing there on my lonesome!

    Anyhoo, I took this at the weekend and while it doesn't exactly show 'the edge' I can promise you the water most certainly went over it. ;)

    Exif:

    Focal Length: 24mm
    Shutter speed: 1/13th sec
    Aperture: f/4
    ISO 200
    Date: 14/04/2007

    Thanks for looking, all C&C welcome. :)

    I can see waht you were trying to do,and its a lovely shot:smashin: .

    I would have Most certainly used a slower shutter speed though,to give it that milky eb.

    I like how you have done this. But I do think it would have been nice to see the edge that the water was going over. But still a good photo.

    It can certainly give the water a milky look as you say, although for me it sometimes verges on looking a bit too unnatural.

    I did take one at 1/4 sec but the water actually doesn't look much different and that's about as low as I go without using a tripod. :suicide:

    Where's the edge..?? Im dead certain that is rain:D

    Nice photo :thumbsup:

    The "edge" and maybe a milky look of the water (with a slower shutter speed with a tripod) would have been fantastic but it is always easy to see these thing from the comfort of a warm room in front of a PC:rolleyes:

    Great effort well done:)

    Nice shot Tomato. Have to say I'd have prefered to see the edge too. But i do like the contrast of of moss with the rocks and the water.

    Me too actually, but it just wasn't very photogenic and I couldn't get to where I needed to be since this was taken inside a greenhouse at Kew Gardens.
    I think I done ok at hiding all the glazing bars! :D
