This has to be one of the best examples of long exposure water photos I've seen. May I ask what NDF you used on the shot?
MichaelMaddaloni PRO
MichaelMaddaloni February 07, 2016
Hi George, I thought I replied to you yesterday but the coment isn't here. Anyway, thank you so much for the kind words, I used a 4x4 10 stop ND made by Lee. There's a cheaper one made by, I forget, but it creates a green cast to your images which is really hard to get out in RAW.

Another beautiful capture ! I have seen those falls but your image makes them look better then they really are . You were standing in the right spot to do them justice. Well done !
Cheers,
Carol

MichaelMaddaloni February 07, 2016
Thank you Carol! I was lucky to have the water be foamy so it just swirled around alot, so I said to myself that might result in an interesting long exposure, and it did. Thank you again!

Some HDR at work here?
MichaelMaddaloni PRO
MichaelMaddaloni February 07, 2016
Thank you Steve, although I have tried to do HDR with long exposures, I doubtI tried that heere it was a while ago, maybe I did, but generally 30 second exposures and HDR are a tough thing, not impossible, but the results in my eperience aren't always great, so, short answer, I forget if I did or not on this one. Thanks again!
