    Hello, haven't posted in a while. Too much busyness. Did get away camping recently - here are a few from recent camping trips.

    Wonderful shots. I appreciate the first two the most. They are dynamic and forceful, with shorter exposures they stop the rapid at a movement in time. Viewed last, I felt 4 + 5 to be static though nicely done and I understand your purpose. They capture the volume over time. This does not imply they are any less worthy. The two groupings showed separately wouldn't have evoked this comparison. In compositional structure 1+2 (and 3 to a degree) are quite powerful showing showing forceful movement along the diagonal. 3 has that wonderful drop off over the precipice.

    Your advice is great: If your feet aren't wet, you are not close enough!

    Great shooting. -Chrome

    Thanks Chrome. I appreciate the feedback. I am always interested in how an image comes across to others.

    I like the first and third the best. I prefer a bit more smoothness(longer exposure) on the running water shots, but thats a small nitpit and just imho.

    I like the first two and the last one. #5 the rocks remind me of a japanese saying
    "the imovable mind" or piss off I`ve been here 20,000 years you can go around me.
    I like it.
