    Great images Sean. Very effectively conveys a summer mood and a peaceful time...

    Thanks Ken for the video and a very nice image on your part too.

    Water, water...

    I keep crossing fountains these days, so here are a few night and day images of such. All taken with an A6000 and SEL1670Z. Hand-held with minimal treatment in post processing.

    The first image is oriented towards the wavy pattern in the foreground (the camera was nearly touching the water - I wish I could have oriented it lower but I would have cut still more of the top - all in all I'm not so pleased with the composition and will want to do this one over) while the second one is focused on water rebounding.

    The next one is really about water vapor in the sky. Captured at Montreal Botanical Gardens yesterday morning.

    Lastly, if you hang around a fountain in strong daylight, you are bound to see this...

    Very impressive series Stef and all of the images offer something special The foreground wave is a perfect lead in light line and the water vapor in the sky fits so well. Prism's are awesome and I like the vibrancy and punch you captured here. Very cool frame!

    I've been trying to get my review work done behind the scenes, but I will get some new photos to share soon enough!

    Thanks again for sharing,

    Nice job Stef. Each of the 4 photos is a very different capture.

    I went out to the same area of Griggs Dam (Columbus) with the hope of getting some shots of the rowers, but I was too late. I will have to find our what their schedule is and go again. In the mean time, I did take a few:

    1) Not exactly an extraordinary shot of a boat and had the guy in the boat been wearing a color other than green it would have been less so, but he helped by wearing a green shirt that coordinated with the background. Having been on power boats in my earlier years I was always memorized by boat wakes (as well as bow waves). The guy in the boat later kicked me off the "private" dock.

    2) This is similar to one I posted recently, but I was able to get closer to the ducks this time for more detail.

    Come on people, I think you all are getting way too clever in this one.
    I will post one sooner or later I just need to get over the Man Flu and I should be right but I have got a lot of top shot here to compete with.
    I really mean this, I hope some of you are thinking of putting some of you images on the wall as they need to displayed.
    I will use one for instance that should be on a wall is anyone of Stef's shots.
    This forum has some very talented people in it. And yes I mean you.
    CC is always welcome, the good and the bad. I promise not to take it personal as I know it wasn't meant that way.

    Mike the last shot is a Canadian goose.
    I like the movement in the 2 duck capture.
    Stef, the sky in that 3rd shot is killer. And the rainbow is just showing off. Heh.

    This is a scene I captured on our walk through the Saugatuck Dunes State Park. The sand dune in the background gives some perspective on the hike we took from the park entrance about a mile or 2 away. I don't do a lot of landscape so this is pretty new for me to try.

    Stef, Vapor filaments and Natural prism are the ones my eyes like. Thanks for validating water vapor

    Mike, it appears a water elemental has hold of you, man. Grokking water shots, you are. I like the goose best.

    Sean, your excellent eye carries you forward on the landscape. Good frame, representative and colorful. Almost looks HDR-ish.

    Cheers,
    Brian

    p.s. some shots coming soon...

    Thanks guys for the nice comments. I have taken other watery shots yesterday (completely different spectrum) that I will try to display later this week. All in all, this challenge topic is a lot of fun...

    Mike, I also prefer the goose but water reflections in general are a favorite of mine.

    Sean, that state park is just calling to bring a book and relax or take a long stroll along the beach. I suspect the water is cold though for a swim? Beauty sky as well...

    Cheers.

    We went in search of water this past weekend, but didn't find much. Most of it seems to be up in the clouds...

    Rather Meh to me, but here are a few:

    Zero interest in technique here - shot on iphone in wobbly canoe - but the subject may be interesting. This cute little stream is the mighty Mississippi River, about 60 miles downstream (I say downstream, even though it actually flows north for the first 40 miles or so - weird!) from the headwaters at Itasca State Park in Minnesota. I vacation near here each summer, and most years we do a canoe trip a few miles down the Mississippi. This is from a few days ago. The Mississippi here is quite different from the one most people are familiar with.

    Sean....I am not the best judge of critters in nature. If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck are my criteria for identification. I am about as skilled with fish, birds, and plants. Nice photo of the coast and sky. Nice grass too (or are they weeds?)

    Brian....like the last two in your series the most with number 4 being the leader of the group.
    David....that is a pretty good photo with an IPhone and being in a canoe. I may have to investigate my Iphone's capabilities in the photo realm if you can produce such decent photos.
    Phil....great job on the waterfall plus the interesting rock formations.

    Very cool shots here. Playing catch-up, as have been out of town past couple weeks and really no internet time.
    Can't comment on all, but do like everything I've seen so far.
    Kudos to Jay for starting things with stellar examples. Keep going back to your macro water droplet on the blade of grass shots. Really find that exceptional. Was that a red flower bloom in the background and that is captured as image in the droplets?

    Nothing to post yet, but I'll find something. Sorting through about 1200 shots taken on vacation (probably at least half will get deleted :-)).

    Again, great shots from everyone!

    Hard to get everything in focus with such a shot.
    Do you focus on the Dolphin or on the Waves or on the Sun?

    Killer contributions everybody!

    Loving the slow shutter speed and silky water, because it just looks like magic every time in my mind

    I also really like the sunset photo and would focus on the waves in this particular composition. I would be tempted to see how slow I could get the shutter for wave blur effect, but probably would give up on that quickly...

    Really nice landscape shots from Brian, David, Mike, and Sean as well

    Lu, always enjoy your car frames and the water drops look great on that car!

    Multiple B-day parties going on, but I promise to get something soon,

    Old Noob, think I looked at that sunset so long that I scorched my retinas - I do appreciate a good sunset.
    I have a lot of shots with water in them from past several days, but closest thing I had to water effects so far is my attempt to capture these falls with slow shutter and unstabilized lens. Some were slower and more creamy, but the focus/shapness was not acceptable. Think I should have had a tripod, as not totally content with the sharpness. these were at 1/10 and 1/13 with the sigma 30mm.

    Thanks, yes, these were in the Olympic peninsula area near Lake Crescent. Tried to capture with what I had on hand, but really seems hard to do them justice. Totally agree with your comment on David C's canoe shot as well. Really nice frame & the water/scenery looks very serene.

    Hey i've been to lake Crescent! I was there at night. i remember being impressed how clear the water was and that i could see the bottom in the moonlight, in the shallows.
