That is a really nice shot, especially hand held at 1/5 sec. Great job.

Too fast & it 'freezes' water, too slow & it's a washout - I would say this was just about right.

Why not use an ISO of 200, rather than 800 with a ND Filter to get the same reduction in shutter speed.

On a different note, I wonder how Shake Reduction would work with this shot.

I was going to ask the same question (why you used 800 ISO and a ND filter rather than ISO 200). I'm always interested in why someone did something to get a great picture like this when they did something I wouldn't have thought of (the higher ISO).

Don't think SR would make any difference with this shot - it doesn't look to me like it has any camera shake and SR makes no difference when it comes to movement of the subject, just of the camera. I have a really terrible picture I took in Las Vegas one evening that shows that - the buildings are clear and sharp, but a taxi cab came zipping around the corner right as I pushed the shutter. Talk about motion blur!

Amended to add: Now that I'm home, I checked the EXIF. Not only was it taken at ISO 200, it was taken at 1/5 sec. Handheld, braced against a tree?! REALLY nice!

Actually, the EXIF shows that it was shot at ISO200. It is a beautiful shot.
