Yes, running water is very powerful. Relatively small streams have served as energy producers in the days of old

That one was shot with...I'd guess, 1/4 second ...

#1, the group fave is around 1/6.17 second or so...

johnnymisadventures,

As in your avatar, it was a close encounter with water. I made a series of exposures on this motive. Just the first one is useable.

Otherwise I would have had to do some serious retouching of all the water stains on the lens, a 17-40 @ 17 mm on a FF house

Well you know the three rules of photography
1 get closer
2 get closer
3 get closer



Cheers

Bynx,

Thanks for following this series. And thanks for the valuable advice at times when you get "home blind"

A Carlsberg, perhaps?

littlejohn,

Your guess is right. I sent this message:

There are much more experienced slow shutter speed photographers at this webbsite

As for me, start with 1/6 of a second, something like that. Use a tripod or a tree. Surroundings must be relatively sharp

Try the Critiques and Techniques section

What might be a bit unusual with these pictures is their close up nature

Cheers

Torgny

A great series of shots. Well composed, the light is perfect, so are the colors.

Well done, Torgny!!
