    Well the first one isn't a reflection, but rather geese flying by before sunrise...ISO 800 @ 1/5o @ 700mm..

    Then we found some reflective moments....

    NIKON D2X    ---    700mm    f/10.0    1/320s    ISO 160

    NIKON D2X    ---    700mm    f/8.0    1/400s    ISO 160

    NIKON D2X    ---    700mm    f/6.3    1/1250s    ISO 250

    Hi Gale...

    Thanks :) 

    I like the reflections, but kinda liked the in motion...out of focus geese before sunrise as well?

    The third one is outstanding.

    Hi Russ...

    A) Thanks

    B) That's one of those shots that I knew looking through the viewfinder that I would be happy with :)

    Beautiful pics Jeff. Is the water always that still there? There must be zero wind.

    Ok Jim, fess up, these were shot in your indoor pool and they were all staged, hence the perfect reflections. Talk about still waters!

    Bravo sir.

    Hi Wade.....

    Shhhhhh.... :) 

    I do love the salt marsh pools when there's no wind early in the morning!

    Hi Chris

    It's only this still on special days...which usually occurs when I'm not there!
  10. I like the thrid one the best very surreal and serene
  11. Outstanding, Jim, as usual. I sat and looked at the photos for a few minutes, really loved the 3rd one.
  12. Jim, all are great, but the 2nd and 3rd ones are just outstanding!

    Just curious. Did you have to use any NR on the sky on the geese? The sky looks very smooth despite the relatively high iso.

    Hi Dennis....

    No NR at all.

    Even though there is definetly some motion blur caused by 700mm @ 1/50, I was happy with the shot :) 
  15. Hey Jim, those are fantastic reflections. The water is so still it looks like a mirror.

    3rd for me too, very nice
  17. I dearly love the reflecting shots, they are all so well done. The calm water really makes these shots.
  18. Jim you have done it again. These are really great each and every one of them. I sure enjoyed looking at them. Those refections are amazing and you have framed them perfectly.

    Hi Gordon....

    If you like reflection shots, you'll be seeing more from me over the next month.

    The marsh grass turns blood red as August turns into September and then early October...and I plan to try and shoot at sunrise at least 4 mornings a week...even before work, weather permitting, until it's gone by.

    Those reflections shots are marvelous.
