I am in the process of writing a series of articles on photographing waterfalls. I have posted links to the first two articles. Any comments would be appreciated.

Ron,
I think I am in your target audience: I know enough to know what shutter speed and composition are and how to change them, and I have tried some waterfall shots, but I didn't know many of the things you put in the article. I have been guilty of asking what shutter speed to use when photographing waterfalls ... on this very forum, in fact. As your target audience, I think your article was very readable, interesting, and informative. Great job. I'll be reading more of your articles. Tori

Ron, I had a quick look at the links you posted - very interesting and useful. Although perhaps the articles were aimed at slightly below my experience level, I still found some new and interesting information - the most important thing to learn is that there's always something more to learn.

I also had a quick look at some of the other articles - also very interesting, particularly in some post processing areas in which I'm less familiar.

All in all, a very well presented an useful site. Thanks for all the work you've done - I've bookmarked it, and I'll be visiting again and again! :)

Ron,
I really appreciated the tutorials on your site. The more I read of these kind of things the more comfortable I feel with all these different things floating around the the photography mindset. The articles are very well written and the pictures are great. The only suggestion I would give is that it would be nice to be able to click to enlarge any of the sample pictures. This be way too much of a burden on your bandwidth, though. Thanks again.

Very helpful, indeed! Especially the relationship of shutterspeed (for desired effect) when related to a particular situation or waterfall. I like to try three different shots or so with waterfalls - one at a 'streaky' blur, one at a blur as the human eye sees it, and one at as fast a speed as possible to freeze it.

The other articles are rather good, too.
