Can i ask how you got this shot?
I was just looking into neutral density filters or even welding glass and this is the effect i am looking for.

This shot was actually taken without any filters. ISO 200 F/22 5 SEC. The timing of the day was the key factor. It was late in the evening around sunset. The lake was very calm from a recent rain. Thanks for your comments

Behind The Lens

Location
Historic Yates Mill County Park in Raleigh, NC
Time
6:30 pm
Lighting
In the original color image it was near sunset, giving me enough glow to produce the shadows and reflections on the water.
Equipment
Nikon D750 Body with Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC, also Tiffen 3 stop ND filter, Vanguard Tripod, and Lowepro Bags
Inspiration
The county has a contest each year called "Mill of the Muse". This was my entry for 2015. I am alway looking for new and interesting angles to shoot. from. This image won 1st Place Adult Mill, and Best of Show.
Editing
The only post process was transferring from color to black and white and working to bring out the details in the mill and waterflowing over the dam.
In my camera bag
2 Nikon D750 Bodies, Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC, Tamron 70-200, Nikon 50mm f1.8d, Nikon 85 mm f1.8D, Nikon 35mm F1.8, Yongnuo 560 IV flash
Feedback
What I tell most of my students is that, patience is a must. Today you may get the right light, then again you may not. Sometime it takes more than on shot and maybe more than one trip to capture the image you are satisfied with. Scout your location without your camera, look for different angles, look high, look low, I use the Hoodman Loupe to see my image before I even get my camera out of the bag.
