Meeting of two paths

Cedar Creek diverges at one point and recombines here in this little pool. The far flow only occurs in times of good rain, whereas the near flow is only dry in times of very poor rain.

    Thanks :) I wasn't overly happy with my creek shots from this outing, just wasn't in the right frame of mind, but this one sorta works.

    Lovely shot Dave...

    Nice timing on the exposure as well. Not too long and not too quick. perfect... The way i see water shots is that you obviously want to convey movement with the water but not turn it into smoke either? make sense.

    Was the weather overcast this day? The lighting seems fairly consistent and flat across the picture...

    One of the things that my wife has suggested that this weekend the family and I actually get out into the bush and take some forest shots! Hoorah!

    I'll take along the sigma ( being careful to under-expose by a stop! ). Only a few weeks ago i picked up a gradient ND4 filter, so i'll be giving that a go for the first time as well... :-)

    cheers. bennie!

    Pretty much, although sometimes you want the water misty - depends on the shot.


    Was the weather overcast this day?


    Got it in one :)

    Have fun this weekend :)

    Lovely pic - did you use an ND filter when you took this pic or did you not need to because it was overcast? :)

    I was down at Cedar Creek last weekend and even a little afternoon light left the pics overexposed :( Is it time to invest in a ND filter or should I find myself a good plastic bag to use as a cover on overcast days? :P

    I just used a circular polarizer (Hoya, green label). BUT, I did wait until it was really heavily overcast (and not raining), and it's taken under the tree canopy.

    Cheers David :D I eagerly await an overcast day (OMG what am I saying ?!) I really really 'need' an ND filter, hey?
  • David de Groot said:
    Ah but overcast days are free, whereas ND filters (good ones anyway) are quite pricey. ;-)

    This is true...I do love gadgets tho ! Will start saving ! :P And in the meantime I'll keep on the lookout for overcast days...only in Queensland !!!

    Everyone loves a good gadget ;-)

    I've noticed overcast days are a bit scarce at the moment. Probably a good thing too, given how cold it is at the moment.
