Cool effect - did you use any filters?

Very nice shots, I like the first one, the composition of water, plants and rock. Maybe you could lengthen the shutter speed to obtain much more of the moving water effect.

Darren, Brownie told me how to change the F-stop in P mode in my '3 Macros' post and i tried it. Guess it will be the same in M mode too. Read Brownie's post in my post and let us know. E.

Good job on those, esp for first time trying to get that effect. I like #1. I'm still trying to get the hang of doing the moving water effect....

Came out good, though! Looks like a bunch of silk threads. Which power ND filter are you using?

Nd4 and the weather was dull (not unusual of course)
