Cedar Creek

Running a bit clearer today, still a little brown but more conducive to photography.

This was a bit of an experiment, as I stacked the ND400 and a polariser to shoot this one.

    100 second exposure ;-) Alas, I couldn't go as wide as I'd have liked as with two standard size filters on, it'd vignette badly at 17mm, so 24mm had to do.

    Very nice how far up is this ? I parked at the end of the road then headed up about 15min walk until I came to some rocks I did not want to climb by myself in the wet.
    I've been hand holding my filters to stop the vignette @ 17mm its a bit cumbersome but works . . . kind of

    These are screw-on filters.
    This spot is not right at the end, it's just down from the park past the green railed bridge (Albert Scott Park?).

    Not a bad experiment mate.

    Ah, ND400. :-)
    I ordered a couple of Lee 0.9 NDs this week so I can use them with my Lee GNDs.
    Two three-stop filters will give me six stops of light reduction; not quite ND400 territory, but certainly dark enough to be effective.

    nice one Dave - at least you have "more" water
    I have seen some waterfal photos over the last couple of days & they still dont seem t have much water flowing

    I love this.
    Images like this are a definite selling point for something like the ND400. Beautifully done David!
  • David de Groot said:
    Worked ok ;-)
    Indeed - opens up another aspect of photography.
    Due to the patchy nature of the rain we've had, some areas have had heaps, and others not much. We're in one of the areas that's had heaps ;-)
    Sure is - although composing while staring through essentially 10 stops of filter (ND400 + Polariser), is not easy.

    Nice silky flow David. Without ND400 I rely on late afternoon for my creek shots & it's quite hard to get surrounding detail in the shot.
    You've definitely had more rain than we have had up here.

    Awesome exposure.

    Hmmm, I was kinda hoping there'd been as much rain up that way as here as I was planning a trip up that way next week some time.
    Thanks Tim :)
