    Like the first one. This is the Jian Zhu Hai right? I put this as part of my composition of the whole lake, but somehow dunno why I did not take a closer shot of it as you did here.

    And looks like your Wu Cai Chi is just about as dry as I was there. I suppose Huang Long is very dry also while you are there?

    I think I know why. The people there asks for money when you want to take a pic of the yak (whether you are riding it or not). So most likely he shot from his waist using a wide angle.

    f22, 1s using ND4 filter.

    Rule of thumb for waterfall shots is long exposures...usually 1/2 a half second or more is great...of course, the longer the better...

    Good thing you have ND filter. While I was there, the light was so good, that even with Velvia @ ISO 50, f/22 and polarizer, I can only get 1/2s - 1s. Can't get longer than that.

    Can't quite identify the 2nd waterfall, which one is it? The Pearl Shoal one?

    Use Cokin filters...they work BEAUTIFULLY with the D30/60s...cos of the 1.6x multiplier...no vignetting...

    Like that save $$$ on CPL, ND, colored filters...you get the picture...

    The EXIF info for the pics can be found in the photo properties in on the URL...just click on the upper right hand corner "properties" i think all the info is there...

    THen again, maybe not...cos it only says the focal length.
    Majority of the shots taken are using a Sigma 17-35EX f2.8-4.0 w CPL. Waterfall shots with the ND also.


    Another one of my better waterfall pics...

    Hi Zapp,

    awesome shots. excellent composition.....

    as a bonus, u've also showed, in this series of shots, just how incredibly awesome the D30 is, that it could be mistaken for slides

    Slides are still unbeatable in that aspect. Projected to 2m wide, it's really incredible.

    I brought one digital, one film and always have to decide which one to use. In the end, I use the film camera loaded with slides to shoot landscapes, and the digital for street, snapshots, etc.

    Default Advice on JiuZhaiGou trip

    I'll be going there in December and spending my first Christmas there. Is there anything that I should be looking out for? For eg: Traffic, petty crime, food or things to avoid, and weather?

    Is it advisable to tag a tripod along?

    Going on a 10D package tour with CTC.

    Many thanks.

    Jeff

    Yes I agree. Though digital resolution is catching up film camera, but in terms of colour and contrast, digital probably still has a fair bit to go...
