The water looks that way due to the exposure time used when taking the photo. It's a very common practice when photographing moving water.

Yes, this was a 1" long exposure, which was actually neccessary anyway due to the low amount of light. That was taken shortly after sunrise, as you can see a bit of early light dappling into the background. To use a low ISO for sharpness (100) and a small aperature for max depth-of-field (f/22), it was neccessary to use the long exposure, but that's what I wanted to do anyway so I was planning the shot for a time of low light. I like the early light in the far background because that adds to the depth.

Happy Trails :)

I appreciate this. It helps to learn what works for others and then you can try it yourself. Each time you take pictures it is unique.

Would you mind if I copied these pics in a folder in my pics for personal viewing?

" is the symbol for seconds...' is the symbol for minutes.

f/ is the symbol for aperature setting.

WB is for the white balance setting, which was set to "cloudy" is this scene.

Happy Trails :)
