I took my camera with me on my recent vacation and wanted to get some feedback on a few of my shots.

WARNING- There is a small spider in the last shot.

Ok, so maybe it is a large spider. They are about the size of a credit card

A little more dof on the spider would have made its legs sharper, but its very interesting anyway.

For the water i suggest using a hight f. like f20 and +, or use a ND filter in order to slow down the shutter a bit. It will reduce the water drops even more.

You visited some great places on your vacation. Hope you enjoyed it.

I really like your shot of Dunn's RIver Falls . That is one wicked looking spider too! Ew...I'd hate to accidentally bump into him!

I think Howardlibs version has lost an awful lot of the original colour. The blues, greens, teals have been muted even moreso. I really like the original although it is slightly flat. I tried a quick edit...

I find that the sign in the photo of Dunn's River Falls is a sad reflection on the human race. I don't even understand why the sign is necessary... so many selfish people who cannot respect nature and its beauty and who think they're the centre of the universe, putting themselves first and not thinking beyond the moment I guess. *sigh*.
