Thanks Soup. I just read up on high speed sync (or FP mode as Canon calls it). That would have been a good option. Thanks for the info.

POW - dry hands to boot - superb - congrats !

ps - if it wasn't the on camera flash - try 'high speed sync' - ISO 200 - 1/400th - f:5.6 ;}

and/or up the flash exposure compensation for deeper DOF or even faster shutter.

Wow. Needless to say, I am delighted with this finish and from some of the comments below, I should be happy with the limitations of my camera lol.

Actually I intended to submit this in black and white, but when I converted it, it didn't look half as good without the colors.

WTG JUlie. FYI I also think the fluidity of the water is a plus. Any more frozen would be all wrong.

Fantastic shot Julie. Congratulations on your well deserved red.

Congratulations on the red. I have to disagree with your comments above about wishing the water could have been more frozen in it's movment. I think the fact that the hands are more static makes them the focal point, if the water had not been slightly blurred, all those wonderfull colors and patterns in the water would have taken the focus away from the hands, it would have been a shot of water pouring over hands rather than a shot of hands in a stream of water. A subtle point I am making badly. Restated, this good, me like, more better this way.

Nice idea and execution, good pose, clarity and sharpness for both the water and hands, better than the other water shots. Nice pose, love it.

Wow! Simply superb. Great sensory shot. I can feel the water on my hands when I view this image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/23/2006 01:40:33 PM
I wish the hands had a bit more shadow on some side or the other, the lighting is a bit too even making them look flat. Other than that, every thing is just right, ought to be top ten.
