Re: Water: long or short exposure?

The water in both of them is great.  But I do prefer the first shot.

In the first photo, the shutter speed is such that it provides detail and a sense of action and motion.  And I prefer the color.

In the second photo the water is great, a more peaceful and mysterious aura.  But the color isn't as inspiring, and I think the shadows are lifted too much on some of the rocks.

Thanks for sharing that scene, wish I was there right now!
