This picture was taken at the Cranbrook Art Institute northwest of Detroit Michigan.
I captured this image using shutter priority of 1/8 of a second on a tripod to soften the water spilling over. I let the internal meter set the aperture, which I believe was F23. This was taken with a Nikon N90s, 28-70mm f3.5-4.6 lens, circular polarizer, on Kodak Gold 100 film.
Yes, it is a great place for photos, as well as Greenfield Village. Since I moved to TN, I have found the Smoky Mountains and Western North Carolina as my favorite places for photo trips, especially waterfalls. According to brouchures, Transylvania County, NC has over 250 waterfalls, including the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi; Whitewater Falls.
Whitewater Falls, NC. Taken this spring. F5, Tokina 28-70 F/2.6-2.8, E100VS, approximately 2-3 second exposure at F/22, ND filter (not sure which ND filter I was using, either a one or three stop). Not the most picturesque falls in the US, but it is over 400 feet from the bottom to the top. Very cloudy and wet day. Photo is deceiving, it does not portray the waterfall as high as it is in person. DD
What a shot. I would love to photograph that, heck I would love to photograph that with an F5! Having camped many times in the Smokies, I can say you have a wealth of photographic opportunities down there. You ever consider shooting some of the caves down around there?
