I had the pleasure last week of shooting this family at our local river. Shot strobist with a 580EXii off camera thru an umbrella. Comments appreciated as always.

1. (1/25 sec, f7.1, ISO200)

2. Longer exposure to blur the water (.8 sec, f18, ISO100)

Yeah these are wonderful! Did you have to use a ND filter or was the light pretty weak by that time? Maybe fast moving water at .8 of a second.

Thanks! No ND. The sun had gone behind the hills. I had gone here the day before and tried some test shots and the slower ones (slower than what I shot this one at) did not look as well because the water is moving so fast here.

I really like the photos. The second, I don't know if it's me, but I find the trees in the background distracting.
That's only if I had to nitpick. :)

Awesome job but I would have to agree with biffbyun, I think a tighter crop all the way around on the second would work well. That's only if I too had to nitpick. :)

Awesome shots both of them, I love the slow shutter effect on the 2nd one. REally well done, For me the first shot has a slight blue/cyan cast, that could be easily fixed in PS. Excellent Work!!!!!

Very nice. I agree with Diego that the first one has blue cast in it. Drop down the blues a touch and it will be perfect.

Yep first one has a blue cast.. and I find that one section of trees to be distracting..clone them out.

Very nice. I would've liked the oldest son to sit closer to his sister on the second picture (or kneel behind her).

Awesome light and effect.

Beautifully orchestrated and lit shots, I like it a lot.

Kudos to the family for being so still and not blinking as well :D

Maybe some warming up in the WB for the background/scene perhaps?

Love the poses and smiles of the first photo.
