Very nice...Bracketed exposures bleneded into hdr would work to keep blown out highlights and keep detail in shadows. So what makes the spring so blue?

I'll have to try that. Although, bracketing with the RX10 seems a bit peculiar in that you can only choose +/- 1/3ev. I would like a higher bracketing range personally.

The blue color comes from a combination of the depth of the spring (300 feet) and dissolved minerals in the water. It is such a spectacular site! You can hardly believe what you're seeing.

Sometimes I feel like 2/3'rds Rice Krispies. Past "Snap" and "Crackle" but just shy of "Pop".

Yes there is a lake up here in NY that is pure aqua green.

I think you are mistaken about Exposure bracketing on RX10 from the user guide:

When you see the icon for bracketing notice the little arrows..use thumb wheel to go right or left as arrows indicate to choose the mode you want.

Cont. Bracket

Shoots multiple images while automatically shifting the exposure from base to darker and then to lighter.

Press and hold down the shutter button until the bracket recording is completed.

You can select an image that suits your intention, after recording.

1. MENU → (Camera Settings) → [Drive Mode] → [Cont. Bracket]

2. Select the desired mode using the right/left side of the control wheel.

Menu item details
