A bit disconserting is the part behind the backmost weir wall. Everything except the two extreme sides is just one huge reflection in the weir dam. The effect of Tv can be seen in the cascading water.
Since there were some comments and questions over the Tv setting that I used over the last few days, I have decided to provide some general info here:
In my reply to some of you I did explain how you could emulate Tv in (Program AE) mode. Any DSLR should have <P> or Program AE. Point & shoot can be another kettle of fish. I just had a quick check on my Olympus C765 how many steps to get there - it is hidden in the menu's and you gotta know your way around.
Tv is a selector setting - your DSLR camera may not have it. In that case you can use <P> where you set the shutterspeed and let the camera choose the f-stop (aperture or lens opening). The added advantage from the Tv is that it will also control the apperture in a way that will give me sharp foreground and background - to an extent. See today's picture. But using <P> you should be able to copy what I have been doing with Tv in all my pictures since Monday.
Doing this with point & shoot can be difficult. With your camera on <P> you should be able to go into the menu and set the shutterspeed and/or aperture. If you can't do this, understand why your camera was more affordable than the higher spec models. But what nev says about taking a DSLR back if it can't provide you with the possibility is quite correct.
Please - the comment about affordability is not meant in a derogative manner. Digital cameras are all program driven and computers on their own. It is a simple truth that the more upscale your camera, the more program functions come with it. I can't afford a EOS-1D Mark III either and some of you may. The point is that you should understand that your camera has limitations, and it would be good if you knew how to deal with it. It also means you should know how to use what you have.
