Default Playing with exposures

Last night at sunset trying different things with the Q. First shot auto HDR 2nd a 9 shot multiexposure trying to smooth out the water and sky. I used the internal ND filter but shutter speeds were still at 1/8 sec. I need to get an external ND filter to get longer shutter speeds but the multiexposure got close to what I was trying to get, what do you guys think.

Well, your 'playing' turned out very nice results. I'll have to try this, thanks for the lesson.

Rodney the multiexposure does not autoalign like HDR, you will need a tripod and remote or use the timer

Now you tell me , I took these hand held, my friend's dog ( Jazz, the one my Mojo likes to traumatise ) shot would maybe better on a tripod, but I kinda like the soft background anyway, the river scene obviously would have been better on the tripod. Mojo turned out ok I think, 1/250th must be fast enough ? and that ND filter worked a treat on this one and the river.

The way the multi-exposure works you must push the release for each image after selecting the number of shots and then selecting "start shooting" in the mult-exposure menu. Either you are fantastic at aligning images in the finder between shutter releases or you missed a step.
