Nice shots although I really don't care for the "softened" water look. Like the natural texture much better unless there is an emotional impact intended with softness, which I don't see here--nothing soft about winter.

Dave, I appreciate your opinion. Some times I go for long exposure water effects by purpose to show water flow direction, or simply to get overall mood. For me Nature is relaxing, I look around during 30 seconds exposure enjoying the moment. Long or fast are parts of natural, some things like Earth rotation with Milky Way time lapse are amazing because it is impossible to see such things with naked eye.

Imagine super long exposure of busy street, image will show "foggy effect" on pavement created by people.

Person is taking photos, not camera. When photograph is bad, it's because photographer doesn't know how to choose settings optimal to "own preferences". Then blames camera for bad IQ.
This is same as blaming car about arriving to wrong destination.
