Thank you for the compliment. My goal is for everyone to see it Just as I saw it. Now I have to learn to use the photo editing software to produce a photo as I took it, and I often come up short with the color, etc. Now if I could only figure out how to attach the sounds of the waterfall and the crickets chirping softly in the background.

Thanks TopDog. It was a Canon RAW file photo and I just used PSE 7 to process it. I am not very knowledgeable about processing them, and sometimes go a little heavy, but I tend to like the heavy contrast. It is funny that you mentioned the detail in my photo, because that is what I always love about your photos. I figured you may be using L-Glass lenses. I just got a new lens for our next trip. 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM. I am excited about trying it out.

DizneyNutz - i forgot to ask what camera did you use for the photos? I am going back thru all the pages again - I start at the back every day at work and at night go back thru the front again (love all the photos) and I don't remember if you had said what type of camera you used. I saw a post about the Canon Raw file - again pictures are amazing. I will be upgrading my camera before November (early Anniversary present to myself). Thanks so much for posting your wonderful pictures.

Thanks for your compliments. I have the Canon Rebel xti. It is already an old model because they have already introduced the next model. It is a mid range camera (not your typical put it in your pocket camera, but also not up to the more professional level of digital DSLR cameras). It can do way more than my photographic abilities call for however, so I will continue using it. If you do not, envision yourself carrying around a full size camera every where you go, then I would not reccommend it. If you are getting into hobby level photography however, I love mine. DW says she don't know how I can stand to carry all that weight around everywhere we go at Disney, but I enjoy the end results.

DizneyNutz - Your photos are inspiring. I'm taking my Nikon D40. What shutter speed did you use to captur the movement of the water? Did you use the camera setting or did you use your own aperture and shutter speeds? Is shooting in RAW better than JPEG? Thanks for the tips. I arrive Friday.

They were both shot using the following settings. Aperature f/5.6, Shutter 4 Sec., ISO 400 and focal length 28mm. As far as RAW vs JPEG I ALWAYS prefer RAW because it is not a Lossy format to image storage, meaning the camera stores the photo as it was taken and you can adjust it later at home with your photo imaging software if needed.

DisneyNutz - Love your pictures, especially since WL is my favorite. I sold my OKW points to buy at VWL in 2006 and haven't regretted it one minute. I still like OKW, I just the WL.
Thanks.
