I look in photo of the day first each time I log on, and I saw this one today. Can you tell me what shutter speed this was shot at?

Thanks very much, all. Chalk up another one for Pentax.

tsquare, I had to go back to the originals. I used exposure blending/compositing on this, so it is kind of like HDR but with layers not a dedicated HDR software...

Looks like it was:

1/2 at f/22
1/15 at f/22
1 second at f/22
1/4 second at f/22
1/4 second at f/16

Actually, looking at that I am not sure how I shot that bracket. If all were at f/22 I would assume Tv mode which is usually how I shoot brackets... to lock aperture down. I wondered if I took exposures from different brackets because I was using a tripod and usually bracket my brackets... But Exif shutter count shows these were contiguous within a bracket...

Anyway, looking at the various single exposures the one that comes closest to the look of the composite (not for exposure but for the effect) is the 1/2 second and the 1/4 second shots. A single shot in that range of time, but appropriately metered, will generally come close to this effect. At one second it becomes a bit of a blur and much of the "power" evident in the shot is lost. Experiment. Try different shutter speeds from 1/4 to 1 second.

Thanks again! Pentax represent...

Hi Seaain,

Very creative, and a well deserved win!!! I like the combination of "milky" motion and some stopped action.

Very well done!

Scott
