First time I try a slow speed photo with flowing water and with HDR in post-production. It does give an interesting finish to the water, almost like it was drawn with pencil.


Nikon 18-55 mm at 39 mm , ISO 100, f/29 with shutter speed 4 seconds with a ND 8 filter taken in RAW and brought back to life with Paint Shop Pro

    1. ND filter can slow the shutter speed down and make some interesting effects but you need a tripod if the speed is too slow otherwise it looks blurry. ND filter can also help you with the Bokeh effect, that I have not try


      1. I’ve read only about the ND used to slow down shutter speed… you’ve got me intrigued now with this other use for the bokeh effect!! i will be most interest to see more of that, if you ever decide to try it 🙂


    1. Thanks …….. a longer exposure would have given a “smoother” finish for the clouds but at 4 seconds I was at the upper limit of over exposing this shot. I will need something darker than my ND 8


  1. Very well done ! 🙂 ND filters look interesting. I should have a try ! But as you have written, I need a tripod then.
