    Interesting use of a fish-eye Jim,

    I'd never have guessed 5 seconds shutter speed though - it looks handheld, was it?

    Cheers,

    Cheers,
    Hi Dave! Thanks for hte feedback, i in fact used my brand new tripod, thats originally why i was out in the wood

    Over the fence

    it allows very weird angle to be used. harder part was to keep my arm steady enough to avoid motion blur. i wanted to have an effect as if i was about to make the jump

    Hi Jimmy. It appears as if the image is not leveled and the water would run down to the left.

    Hi Ken thanks for your feedback!

    The camera was actually leveled, maybe you feel its tilted because of the fish eye effect?

    Is that a Manfrotto 055XBPro? I got that recently and like it very much. Nice image by the way.

    i was looking at the manfrotto but i found this instead

    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...263AB_100.html

    was (still) 60$ off and the complete set was also cheaper then the manfrotto alternative

    That ball head looks similar to my Manfrotto 468MGRC4 head.

    Have you squashed your fingers yet, or has that make overcome the problem?

    Mine is absolutely solid but if I don't fully tighten the locking screw handle when using a heavy camera and lens etc then pick up the assembly just under the ball head, everything rotates and traps my fingers between the mounting plate and ball housing!

    Re: Over the fence

    went back to the same spot today, wanted to try something else

    Over the fence

    I realize the shadows are pretty harsh but i wanted to have a POV effect as if it wasnt a photograph per say but more so someone seeing through my eyes.

    Re: Over the fence

    Having the hands like that looks more like an intended composition instead of an accidental piece of arm.

    Just thinking, but I wonder if it would be possible to have the palms upwards as though they are surrounding and holding the water?

    May need a merge of two focus points though
