Here's another abstract from Armand Bayou last weekend -- out of focus water, creating a bokeh pattern in the reflections. I've posted this as a high resolution jpg. Please feel free to download and use it in your Photoshop work -- and please post a link back in the comments. I'd love to see how it's used.

It was sunny and cold when we reached the trailhead to the falls, so we headed out on about a mile-long hike to the falls. The farther we got along the trail, it began to rain, so the snow along the trail became slush. We made it to the upper falls, and it was a vantage point where you actually stood above the falls, so with the heavy rain and spray from below I decided the best shot was a spot I saw along the hike -- in the lower section. There's a small bridge across the falls that you see here, so in a pretty heavy rain and about 36 degrees I pulled out my camera and took about 40-50 shots. The one you see here is from alongside the falls -- probably the best angle. Since I was limited in so many ways (rain, cold, slippery rocks, raincover on the camera, raincover on me) I didn't attempt the vari ND filter, so I went ISO100, f/22 and my shutter speeds ended up around 2-3 seconds, which created a pretty nice blur on the water.

Paintcandy, so I blended in a sky from the package. 1/160 sec at f/4, 85mm, light from a Nikon SB800 in a Cowboy Studio beauty dish from camera left.
