Seriously, it looks like a side profile of a troll’s face.

This is another example of why photogs should take tons on shots when it involves motion.  For me, eight shots of moving water is about average.  For some photogs that make a living selling prints, 50 to 80 shots of a single water composition is not uncommon.  Each image is different and somehow, they determine which is “the one” they will spend hours refining into the final photograph.

EXIF data: Nikon D7000, center weighted metering mode, ISO 100, 72mm, f/18, 0.4 sec

    1. Thanks Tony. I was able to choose from a handful of the same comp to find the “best” water movement. Only photogs would spend time staring at seemingly the same photographs to find the perfect one, right?


    1. Thanks Greg. Much like shooting in the field, when the big picture shots are done, we have to look at the smaller compositions. Here I was reviewing old archived images and decided to crop and focus on a small section.
