. . . . . . . .

I learnt many similar shots at TL . . and tried to find out the river with some colors at the surrounding . . and found this one . .

The only problem I had was not bringing tripod . . so I can't get slower than this one . . I can go slower with a better water flow . .

Handheld with 1/4 sec speed . . ISO 100 . .

Increase saturation, add frame and resize . .

Thank you for viewing it . .

Hi Tjutjut

Good use of a slow shutter speed, to add some motion blur to the water, with effective tight framing, & good lighting. Tfs!

kok lihat disini beda dengan lihat di notebook tadi ya pak ? disini airnya agak kehijau2an sedikit :D. rumput2 diatas kalau didodge bisa lebih eyecatching loh pak

Hi Tjutjut,

...or you could take of your shirt, make it into a ball and put your camera on top of it and use the selftimer - that way you can play a bit more - all depends in what company you are of course - but it is not as crazy as taking freezers to the golf course - no just joking ...
I think this works out really really fine and the light and colour in the water is very attractive.

Hi Tjut,

shutter speednya sudah lumayan untuk memberi milky/silky effect kepada flow airnya. cuman, handheldnya yang mengakibatkan lumut di batuan sedikit kurang jelas; barangkali karena ada sedikit shaky; walaupun bagaimana, keindahan water flow sudah cukup untuk complement kehebatan imej ini. well done.

I love these scenes. They are like the inspiational posters and pictures you find. Beautifully taken. such a gorgeous pov, TFs

Hehe.. Om Tjutjut still has very strong arms to hold that 2 kgs gears for 1/4" without shake..
Great capture for haldheld ommm..

Textbook perfect mate. Very well done. Lovely use of the long exposure, with no obvious OE areas on the water, and overall very good sharpness on the rocks and surroundings, considering it is handheld! I couldn't do it - I needed to use a rock as my tripod!

Great picture with wonderful color and composition. Excellent shot for not having a tripod.

Salam Bro Tjutjut,
Wahh..ini keren banget nih bro,milky effek seperti ini saya suka ni bro..effek nya tidak terlalu kuat..cukup untuk mempercantikan keindahan dan suasana dalam foto ini..
wonderful done bro..

Ada rancana hendak kemana dihujung minggu ni bro?


Terima kasih komentar foto aku "WATER LILY"

Hi Tjutjut,
what a nice capture of yours,
excellent compo,
:) tomorrow

Well done with your handheld bro. Really nice water flow indeed. It remind me of my time playing at a river in my village when i was a kid.

1/4 sec is quite a time to hold in ISO 100. Very nice the results. Hope to learn from you more on day.

Hi Tjutjut
You most certainly got a pretty good shot without tripod, you have a very steady hand. I would have the rocks all over the place.

You have captured a moment Tjutjut

Hi Tjutjut,

Love teh smooth surface of the water, nice captured of the lighting creating those colours too, great shot! :D

Have a nice day,


Hello Tjutjut.
Notting wrong with the shutterspeed you used.
Nice milky water, which is flowing well.
Have a nice day.

Hi Tjutjut,
Very good motion effect on the water using a slow shutter speed ... very effective. Well captured and composed with very good resulting image quality. Well done! tfs

Nice exposure Tjutjut. Lovely shot. I like the movement of the water.

Hi Tjyjut. Nicely captured flow of the fall with stunning impression of the rushing water. Super sharp wall and rocks under well exposed lighting. Well done and best regards Tjut. I felt like dipping in the stream under this hot weather. :-)

Lovely flowing water effect.

Nice capture. Good job using the shutter speed to capture the feel of the water flowing across and over the rocks, makes this shot far more effective than stop action.
You got the feeling captured as well, you can almost hear the water, with the intimate POV and perspective from your cropping, both on and off the camera.
Nice job of hand-holding at 1/4 sec too.

Hi Tjutjut,
Very good,good lghting,congratulation.
Best regards,

hi tjutjut

beautiful shot again
beautiful place

great sharpness though handheld
perfect timing to capture the moving water

very nice image


Hi Tjutjut,

Great shot.
Beautifull frame.
The flow is so well captured...


SUPER nice Tjutjut!! Nice details, LOVE the framing here, but the BLUR makes this shot work extremely well.

Great picture. Love the water movement outcome.

Best regards,

the shutterspeed is just good enough my friend, beacause the effect on the flow of water is softly perfect, good colors as well, good execution and composition. TFS>

Very beautiful photo of the waterfall
Great to see the rock in the middle makes it even more splitting
The milky look gives it a warm intention

Hello Tjutjut :)

You managed very well to capture this nice waterfall ! The POV is excellent and the effect very nice. Lovely colours and frame, bravo !
Have a nice day my dear friend.

Best regards from France

hi Tjutjut

Nice 1/4s to show the smooth flow of water for this interior shot with dim light condition. The sharpness of overall photo is not high but you are onto the water element, so the softness is working well to this effect, IMO. Just a tad dark on some zone.

tfs, bill

Olá Tjutjut

great shot and very beautiful mood water.

My regards


Hello Tjutjut,
Such a beautiful shot. Amazing looking flow of the water. Excellent shot!
