    We were all at a different park and lake today. Thank you all for this amazing inspiration. These pictures give me such amazement.

    I love this reflection shot. Looks like it could be a postcard. Thank you for the inspiration for the next time I go to MacArthur Park. This park and area is a favorite of mine for photography because of its diversity - the people, the sights, just everything... ~Michelle~

    The water appears so still in this shot. It is a postcard.

    Thanks everyone. Its a 2 second shot compared the the first which is a 1/60th sec shot. That is the difference between the two.

    One of these days my unmathematical mind will learn the difference and what that means Myron. ;-) I guess I'm the kind of person who needs to be shown. Is that shutter speed or exposure? DUH, can you tell I don't know much about photography?

    Michelle, 1/60, 1/30, 1/15, 1s, 2s, You close the aperture each time you double the exposure time. Richer colors and more depth of field when you use the smaller aperture and and it requires more exposure time.

    Thanks William. I'll have to try it with my Nikon. Like go to the park and mess around with it to see how my photos come out. ;-)

    Leaving the shutter speed on for 2 seconds gives the sloshing water reflections to twinkle about. All this light movement is captured on the single film exposure. The effect is that it gives a more "creamer" and more abstract look to the moving water.

    And it is beautiful, "creamier" is a good word for the water being so smooth.

    Sweet photo. Love the darkened purple sky.
