Number 6, with the lily pads and the purple flower is my fav.. The water is sooo calm. It makes me want to take a nap... Should be on the wall of a doctor's waiting room.

great stuff, each one needs it's own thread for detailed comment

Hot air balloons is my favorite, awesome color and I really like the composition.

They are fantastic. Being new to photography I would really like to know how you achieved the effect on the Water, was that done with a longer shutter release, or how would you do that?

Just a slower shutter speed. drop a stop or so i think i was at 8.0, 400 iso and tripod or in my case concrete to set the camera on. remote release helps, i think these were taken at 1.5 sec or 3.0sec i cant remember. just shot till i got the effect i wanted.....good luck....lens was 16-50 DA*2.8 shot in M mode K20D....any other questions just ask ....

Thanks Pentaxnut, I know it might be a stupid question but I will ask it anyway, when you say "drop a stop" you are refering to aperture, right?
