    photo_noob1, nice start! I find the most useful thing to aid waterfall photography is a circular polarizer filter. This does two things. First, it greatly reduces reflections--from wet rocks & leaves, surface of the water, etc.--which often end up as blown highlights. Second, it acts as a neutral density filter--essentially a plain darkening filter--which reduces the light entering the lens and thus allows you to take pictures with a longer exposure, giving you that oft-desired blurring of the water (like you have in your second picture.) Oh, and since you want longer exposure times, a tripod or other camera support is needed.

    Hey!! My 500th post!!

    I agree with all Adam said ... a CP is on my wish list but it looks like you've already discovered my favorite waterfall tip, shoot after sundown! Gives you a lot more "play" with the shutter speed without overexposure. You're off to a great start.

    Little more zing.

    AE I took your waterfall pic and gave a bit more detail and brightened it up.

    Nice shots, Geoff. I also liked your heather flowers.
    I like the first one here best -- I wonder how it would look with a longer exposure. Do you have any?
