What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? This is the first time I went out shooting in the rain! This was for a photo class at the local arboretum, which was full of intimate landscapes. The instructor challenged us to take different perspectives of the same subject.

Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? Rain cover for my camera and lens! Canon EOS 60D with EF 24-105 and Macro 100mm lenses plus a tripod. I used a polarizing filter for the waterfall.

Love your pictures! All are good but especially composition and lighting for waterfall no. 2, maidenhair spiral and woodland fence!

I think you have some interesting pictures that are shot under soft light conditions that are perfect for these particular situations. It can be very difficult to photograph inside a forest when you have a really bright sunny day with overpowering bright spots all over. I think you have some lovely images, especially your scenes with green. Your wider overall shot of low waterfalls is not quite as strong because it looks like you're trying to include too much in the picture. There's so much stuff going on in that image that it's hard for us to know exactly were supposed to look at. Something to be careful of is backgrounds. In your picture of the flower, you have a lot of stuff going on in the background right behind the flower that is very distracting to us looking at this flower.
