Went up to Fall Creek Falls, TN this weekend and had a little time for some shooting. These are the ones I like the most so far, and were done hand held with the 55-250 IS. I'm not very experienced with PP so please offer suggestions on that as well as anything else you see that can give improvements. I'm still new to this whole photography thing. =)

Different detail, custom WB. I wish I had an extra inch or so on the top and left side, but this was as wide as I could get from my shooting position.

Very nice. Good control of the whites in the water. I need to go back there soon myself.

Thanks, JTB. I like my images a little dark, but I am wondering if that makes them look under exposed instead? Any opinions, anyone?

Good looking shots. Did real good for doing hand held. You can see a little bit of motion blur, but not too bad.

You would be able to get a more prominent "silky water" look with a tripod, and the image would be all around sharper.

What were your settings? And I think they could be a tad brighter... just depends on what you're going for though. :)

I'd have to look in my organizer at home to get the EXIF if it's not in tact on these photos. And if it isn't on these photos, I have no idea how to preserve that, lol.

I did some waterfalls the same day with a tripod and some silky water effects, but I rather like the turbulent look of the water in these. I think a silky effect might take out too much of the water detail? There was some sunshine on the water in places, so I didn't want to blow that out either. Tough lighting situation for a newb like me!

Might have to do some layers and masking in the future for these types of shots.

I think the exposure is slightly off. Is this what was intended? of course it could be my screen too.

It probably is off. Like I said, I do like my photos a little on the dark side, but these (especially the second one) look under exposed. Thanks for the input, I think I agree with you.

Here you go Shady, managed to get the settings for you :D and nice pictures but using a tripod will improve your pictures big time :D

Haha, thanks. I have them at home, I just don't have the EXIF plug in on my browser at work. ;)

What would you guys suggest for exposure to keep the same amount of motion blur on the water, but achieve a bit brighter exposure? This is the question I was asking myself when I was there. Higher ISO?
