Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

Nigel, this is superb! A spectacular job of motion stop and of catching the water in just the right exposure to give it a softer look...but not too soft for the scene. If I could do a motion stop like this, I would be a happy camper! This is just beautiful!

15 Jun 2011 12:15pm

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks Denny - you're too kind.
