    Which water images looks better here? The first two are taken with faster shutter speeds and the last with a 1/4 shutter speed.

    There doesn't seem to be any images. :confused: Is this some kind of prank?

    They're great shots! NZ is really beautiful. I like the last image best, the effect of the water appearing to flow is awesome.

    Thanks, I wanted some advice on which one to include in my portfolio. I was leaning towards the third to but I wanted some extra help :)

    New Zealand is beautiful, I took these 10 minutes down the road from my house.

    Aperture is great, dont listen to the reviews, go out and try it yourself at an Apple Store. it makes everything so easy and is filled with helpful, timesaving features.

    I thought iPhoto was awesome and I didn't need anything else...until I tried Aperture. :)

    I have it, I just like knowing peoples' opinions. Do you have any problems with RAW converting? Try this and convert the RAW files to DNGs.

    Does Aperture manage photos different from iPhoto?

    No 3 (the end one) is best.

    Number three. I have always loved that silky appearance that one can get with a slow shutter speed and flowing water. Number two would be my second choice.

    The third pic is the most traditional, but I kinda like the first one

    Me too.

    Any time anyone has a shot of moving water, the water looks like it does in the 3rd pic. I don't know why people like it so much, but I guess the 3rd one is a big hit in most people's opinions.

    I like the first and the third one. The water in the second one doesn't look as nice.

    I vote for the slower shutter speed. Would love it even more, with an even lower shutter speed.

    Shrug. I really like the second (middle) one.

    I'll take a Tripod next time and try a 5 and 10 second shutter speed. This will look like a painting :D

    So do I. I like the glassy bubbliness (sp?) of the water. Much better than either the 1st or the 3rd

    I actually really do NOT like #1. And the 'silky' effect in picture 3 seems so cheesy. :eek: I imagine seeing it in a mall as one of those 'animated' framed pictures.

    Though it doesn't have RAW ( :mad: ) the S80 is a GREAT camera. It's no dSLR, but it's reallly good.

    Also, I'd push the exposure down to 1/8 or 1/6 just to get the falls to be a bit more "creamy"
