Shutter Speed: Waterfall

Today I took the Photo Friday winners to Tumwater Falls Park.  I taught them how shutter speed affects the look of pictures that have moving objects.  Water is an easy way to see this.  When the water looks smooey, we say that the shutter was opened longer (maybe 1/4, 1/20 sec).  If the water looks like little diamonds then the shutter was fast (1/250, 1/1000 sec.).
