[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today again something new,when I went for a walk yesterday in Alhagen,I tried to make a picture of the movement of the water,I had seen many shot like this before on TN,but actually never tried out myself,and it was more difficult as I expected,but had time enough to experiment with some camera settings,as the subject was not running or flying away as normal with my normal subjects,I took this with my 300mm lense (as I was out for some birding capture,did manage to see and photograph some long tailed tits) and I know this lense is maybe not the best approach for thes kind of shots,but I was satisfied as a first try,let me know what you think,

ps Alhagen is a wetland constructed about 12 years ago,as a last stage to clean of waste water,

Hello Paul,
You are also in the artistic shot ;-) Smart B&W photo !
The "+++" : composition, water effect, POV, sharpness, efficient B&W, frame, useful complementary note...
The "-" : nothing...
Good job and thanks for sharing,

Hoi Paul,
Het gebruik can de 300mm lens lijkt mij perfect. Het geeft een geheel ander gevoel aan het perspectief, en dat vind ik des te mooier. De actie in het water is super, net nog dat beetje structuur maar wel de beweging. Het lijkt me dat zwart wit de best keuze is, het detail komt beter naar voren, en de focus is echt op het water.

Leuk om ook iets anders van jou te zien.

Merhaba Paul,
Very nice flow photo with good composition. Regards,

Hi Paul,

I really light this tight crop, my eyes stay on this beautiful milky water (excellent choice the F25) and love the black and white.


I think that the chosen 1/10 is just enough to show the flow but without an unnatural aspect. The frame of grass and composition is good also.
