I know I'm going against the grain hears, but have to say it anyway. While I appreciate the effort and though the composition on the first two was very nice, my overall impression is that the "smooth water" effect takes the beauty away from the natureal power and flow of water. It works nicely for a tranquil mood of a bubbling brook with fall leaves but, IMO, is out of place for these types of scenes.

Sorry--just had so say it. I know it is a popular trend currently--but one I just don't care for.

Dave, you're not alone...what I tend to do is take a couple of each type of shot of moving water...cover both sides of the coin.
