As long as it works, I don't care what it looks like!

It is nice to see creative genius at work!

Hmmm... Never been referred to as a "creative genius". Thanks for pumping up that ego! :lol:

Hi all, I hope no one minds me dropping in on you guys here. I've been following this thread with keen interest. I finally got to the last page last night. I feel I've read enough to try it out.

First off I have very little skillset when it comes to photography. You might say I'm a point & shooter with a DSLR. My comfort level is Av. This is one of the first time I've used Manual.

I've followed c2thew's process on page 67. But I'm a bit confused about the part on shooting a coffee filter first. But I assumed this is to reference the WB later, and use this setting as my Custom WB. Therefore at future sorte, I can just switch to Custom WB? Or is this done to help me during PP?

I'm not sure if I had done it right. After I've taken a few shots. I used Aperture 3 to remove the green tint. Now I'm left with a blue tint :oops:

Canajun - I really like the blue of your first image, it gives it a very cold wintery feeling to the shot

Stetzam - first rate subject and great result
If I may suggest cropping of the pole at the edge of the righthand side, it might balance the image a little more

Thanks.
It's almost winter here and everything is brown. I sure would like to shoot waterfalls but the closest one is 3 to 4 hours away:(. So I'll have to settle for clouds and streams to do my practice.

Silly me...
I thought I would be suave and go out and capture wave action.
The weather person said gusty winds out of the West North West.
Perfect I thought, I can go get some nice wave action at a local lighthouse...WRONG!
The wind gusts were about 35mph. on Lake Ontario here in NY.
Sand was trying to sandblast my welding glass, and it seemed no matter how much weight I attempted to add to my tripod, there was still some movement...grrrrrrrr

Below is the result of my feable attempt.
I title it .... "Extremely Soft".
