Hi,

Yet another bush walk and yet more photos. I thought I would share a piece of equipment that is not mentioned much in this forum. I have a 62mm Neutral Density (ND) filter (ND8, 0.9 Density) which blocks 90% of light but doesnt alter colour, it allows much longer shutter speeds than usually possible.

These photos were taken at f8 with a 4 sec exposure time. I placed the camera on a rock and used the timer.Of course the ND filter was attached.

I just thought I would share. Comments welcome.

Nice effect. I've seen these used on ocean photos in the landscape forum, but this is the first on a stream. :-)

For the bright light around the sea you need to stack ND filters or get some really strong ones. But this place was already dark so one ND8 filter was enough.
I am not overly happy with the photos and plan to go back with my tripod and have another go. That may have to wait for next weekend.

I have on of these. Hoya ND4 and an ND8... haven't fooled with the 8 yet, but I think I prefer the 4 to the -1-1/2 exposure comp. These pics do have a different look to them, can't quite put my finger on it though. More detail, perhaps?
