  1. First real play with very slow speeds.

    Gives a really surreal feel to the water.

    Is the white balance way off?

    I like it has a nice effect what was your shutter speed? I cant comment on white balance it looks fine to me but i cant set my own up ..
  3. Settings were 30.0 seconds, at f10
  4. I am not sure about the WB the more I look at it...
  5. Paul, I like it. Gives me some ideas.

    If you don't mind me asking what time was it? (i.e. how much coffee should I drink before trying to pull this off)

    Paul it looks good. Funny thing you came all the way from UK to Yosemite. I live two hours away and have never been there. Now that is week. :mad:
  7. Heh. I live in Los Angeles and I've been to the beach two or three times in the last ten years. I think I went to Yosemite four times 9/05 through 07/06.
  8. Jeff, This was shot at about 20:30 or so - It had just gone dark... Yosemite View Lodge is a great place to shoot the river from (there is a nice Restaurant there too!)

  9. that picture is awesome......what is your tripod and head setup??

    blue water and rocks??
  11. A Manfrotto (Bogen in the US I think) 718 Digi with the standard head that comes with it. It is called 'Mini' but don't assume this means weak - Just light!

    It is light, and pretty sturdy - Great for what I need - Well worth a look.
  12. Exactly - I am still unsure of the White Balance - I will have another look tonight. Still, it was pretty much pitch black, so perhaps a 30 second exposure will give that effect?
