hi tom,
beautiful landscape, good composition and colors. at 3 sec the character of water is totally gone, good effect though, i would have preferred 1/15 sec to show little of movement of water. tfs.

Hi Tom,

Lovely atmosphere that you have captured here. Your 3 sec exposure has given the water a misty surrealism which fits well with the scene. Well done.


Hello Tom
I like the water effect, due to the long exposure. I never tried to use such long exposure, because of the fraid that my pictures will become to white.

I like your POV here, it is different than the usual stream shot. The slow shutter speed really adds to the shot as well,


Hi Tom,
A beautiful photo of a very pretty looking creek. The lush vegetation surrounding the river gives the photo a wonderful secluded feeling. The slow shutter speed created a nice soft effect on the water but also acts as a great leadline since it is so much brighter from the rocks and trees.
I did do a workshop on this photo. Not because something is wrong about yours, but just to give you a different idea. I hope you don't mind.

  • Great

Beautiful water scene Tom,
Your use of a very small aperture with such a long shutter speed produced great results. I've never tried such a long shutter speed in the daytime for fear of a washout. Your photo proves how effectively it it can be done. TFS.
