Thanks for kicking off this month’s theme Ken. Your photos show the different qualities of water. Reflections and texture. I just wonder what the reflection of the boat looks like upside down? Hope you didn’t get to wet taking the night shot.September 4, 2017 at 10:53 pm #14814September 4, 2017 at 10:55 pm #14815

Coincidence or what? I had to zoom fully as they were a long way from shore. So heavily cropped and excess noise. Applied noise reduction and not bad. However on checking exif the original photograph I took near Porthmadoc on this day 5th. Sept. 2009.September 7, 2017 at 4:02 pm #14827
Regarding your reflection photo, personally I prefer the up side down version. But I’m an upside down person!
It certainly was a strange coincidence in the date of you last photo and I can’t see any evidence of noise at this scale.
Here’s a couple of photos that show the difference shutter speeds can make when photographing water:
This one was taken at 1/8 second
This one was taken at 1/500 of a second. Which do you prefer?September 7, 2017 at 5:37 pm #14829
Ron Smith never liked Milky water, I think there is a place in photography for bothSeptember 8, 2017 at 10:31 am #14834
I saw Ron on Monday and he told me he doesn’t like milky water. I agree with you that there’s room for all extremes of recording water. It’s subjective. Personally I like a bit of texture in my water. In the photo above you’ve got to use a fast shutter speed to freeze the canoeist and that freezes the water which looks great.
In my snap below I just liked the pattern the waves were making. Not very exciting really but it makes my point.September 9, 2017 at 9:44 am #14837
I’ve recently visited Little Moreton Hall and took this photo of a reflection in its moat. I’ve turned it upside down to try and make it make more sense. I think that it looks more like a painting than a photo. Do you agree?September 9, 2017 at 1:07 pm #14845
Yes I do agree.September 9, 2017 at 5:57 pm #14846
