    Awesome Shot Mark! Can I ask if you used a ND Filter and if so which one? Trying to work on this style myself. I only have a ND-4 filter so far in my kit.

  • Troy,

    From memory it was a ND8. Also when metering, as there is so much green, meter off the green and use -2/3 exposure compensation.

    In my kit I have both the ND4 & ND8 plus a NDX400 and a CPL all screw in plus a set of Cokin Graduated ND2,4 & 8 plus ND4 & ND8.

    Thanks for the feedback and the favourites.

    Thanks…this stuff gets more technical than the average person realizes. The metering has quite an affect on the shot as well I’ve recently learned. But I see where metering off the green brought you stunning results:)

    Happy Shooting


  • I just double checked and with an exposure of 89sec it was definately the NDX400 that I used.

    Wow! I’m amazed that you got that many fern leaves to stay still for 89 seconds! Great shot once again!
