Thanks,
Dan

Love the composition, it appears to be either a little dark, or a tad underexposed however. Did you shoot this in RAW or is it taken as a JPG?

This was taken with a Fuji Finepix 2600 Zoom 2.0 MP P&S totally by accident. It was dusk and I was trying to shoot the falls with flash on and getting water mist and a lot of ugly stuff in the picture. I turned off the flash and tried again. This is what I got.

Bushkill Falls, PA circa 2004

Well not necessarily a mistake, it's more like a step. I think most people start shooting jpeg then eventually switch to shooting RAW. It will give you a LOT more latitude in post-processing because all the original information is still there. You do not have that with a jpeg file, not to that extent.

Takes more room yes, but so? I shoot a 5D with a 4GB card in it. I get over 200 shots that way per card. I rarely use a card in a day of shooting and only then if I'm shooting birds/wildlife.

You could probably increase the exposure or brightness (both) in that image still and get it lighter...but if it were RAW you could do much more.

Taken on the Virginia Creeper Trail, during a bike ride. Not a very big waterfall, but I thought it was interesting.

i am just starting to shoot more RAW for just that reason. Thanks for your comments!

I can't even imagine not shooting RAW. I'm too lazy to set WB in camera for each shot so I just leave it on AWB which leads to me usually adjusting the WB in PP for each shot. Also I love the power of adjusting the exposure if I see fit.

There's an overwhelming number of great shots in here...something about freeze framing moving water that is very captivating.
