    great shot mark. would love to do something like this but first im short of waterfalls in my area and second i always seem to have expsoure problems with to much light even on f22. maybe i need to try shooting early evening and catch some waves at the coast on a long expsoure

  • Thanks Dean. Get some ND filters then you can still shot around f11

    Not sure if it worked how you wanted Mark but looks pretty cool to me. What did you hope for, freeze the water movement? it’s a fantastic result anyway Mate- nice!

  • Thanks Jimmy. I just wanted to add some fill light to the rocks on the left anmd right. I was happy with the light on the waterfall itself. Took 3 shots just needeed to up the FE to get it right.

    yeah my filter collection is woefully lacking at moment with just a coupld of AV and polarizers but with the basic lenses i have polarizers are a pain as lens rotates during focus so have to then tune in manually. think i have one ND filter and a couple of other purple ones for use under artifiical light. Add to that i only have a baby canon 1000D so iso goes to 100 at lowest when 64 would be better. mainly though its finding the time and place to experiment with some shots.. going to have to haul myself down to the coast.. or take my camera in the bath with me and practice on the running taps !

    just found a ND fader filter with adjustable grad from ND2 to ND400. wondered if anyone had tried one of these, sounds interesting piece of kit

  • I believe it might be a sing-ray. If it is I’ve read mixed reviews mostly on the negative.

    there seems to be 2 main brands. ND fader and singh- ray. the singh is around $400 the ND fader around $100. reviews vary depending on the lens used, wide andgle can cause vignetting but for normal tele/zooms or primes they seem to be widely applauded. anyway i jusy found the Fader original on ebay for $12.50 with about an hour to go on bidding so its worth spending that small amout as a single filter will easily cost that! i’ll let ya know if i win once ive got it what its like
