    Wow. Beautiful shots.

    All I have to ask:

    How?

    How did you get those shots, and what camera?

    The 1) is very classical, throw something in the water and shoot in rafale mode.

    for the other ones
    1) choose a good place where the water is gushing
    2) fix the focus distance on the camera, chose Speed mode (> 1/500s)
    3) shoot in rafale mode
    4) Make your selection

    All has been taken with a sony DSC-V3 camera.

    Sorry for the newbie question, but what in the heck is rafale mode? Did you use a tripod?

    Excuse me, "rafale" is a french word. Replace it by "Burst".
    Tripod could help you but is not mandatory.

    Great series of shots Jeff. I love the third and forth ones in particular. These two have a real richness of colour and shape. And as always beautifully presented.

    All exif informations are include in the pics. You could save them in your disk and consult the exif infos with your favorit tool.
    Post treatment : a small crop and framming
    I've used the priority speed mode. I think the result could be better in manual mode by reducing the aperture to have a better DOF and fixing the speed.
    With a best focusing these kind of picture could be very great.

    Very cool pictures Jeff! I can't wait to get my FZ30 and make use of the burst mode as well, I love water pictures. Your second shot almost looks like a hand reaching out at something out of the water! (I guess some imagination is required to see that...heh heh.)
