These were all in Mexico
This is a discussion on Water pictures within the Landscape & Flower Photography forums, part of the PHOTO GALLERIES category; These were all in Mexico...
seems the views are a little small. but very nice shots
I wanted to leave them as they were, but had to make them smaller so they'd all fit.
these would be good candidates for a slower shutter speed, to give the water a sort of silky, smooth sense of motion... though with the first, with people in it, that wouldn't work...
I agree with squirl033. Of course we both live in the state of Washington, so we might be a little biased on the subject. These are great opportunities to experiment with flowing water and motion -- slow shutter speeds and larger f/stop settings (smaller aperture opening). Your images are great, but the visual experience of motion can be enhanced for your viewer by allowing the water to blur while the remaining environment remains in rock-solid focus.

good shoot and try,
but I don't like the people on the first one. They are too small to be a real part of the photo. So I think you should take the picture without anybody in the water (or around)
Canon eos xsi (450D)
Canon EF-S 18-55 IS
Kodach ZD710 (pocket bridge)
Thanks for the advice everyone. I really appreciate it.
I don't like the people in the first photo either. Sadly, I wasn't able to get any photos of the waterfall without people there.
