I think was one of my first photo's I took with a Nd filter.I think the exposure time was around 8 minutes long. I think they is something magical about waiting a few minutes for the photo to appear on the back of the camera, Kind of reminders me of back in the darkroom waiting for your print to develop.

Great image ,if it was mine I would crop the top off, so that your eye does not drift to the white sky.

A super image, agree a slight crop from the top would improve it, but still good enough for an award,

Tend to agree with a crop, say just leaving a little bit more than the top of the bridge in that way a third is devoted to the water which holds the viewer, the trees at the top and that sky arent needed imo, give it a shot and re post, would love to see it again.

Ive stood in that very spot but not for 8 minutes with the shutter open! Love the long shutter result, must try it, was it a 10 stop and did you end up witha colour cast?? Best regards PhilSmile

Hey phil

yes it was a 10 stop Nd filter, The colours of the photo you see on your screen is pretty much what came out of the camera,so yes they was a bit of a amber colour cast. I just make sure I set a custom white balance before adding the filter.
I do agree with everyone about adding a crop, but I never crop or convert to black and white any of my landscape images. I know it may sound a bit pretentious and stupid but if I choose to crop this image I will just have to reshoot it.

Thanks for your vote

Wonderful colours that have a 'walk right in' silky feel about them. Well worth the effort and the wait!

Its an attractive image. I wouldnt hurt if some of the water was white, and the reds toned down, - even some green rocks are a tad red.

Re cropping the top off, - better perhaps to fill in with some foliage if its a distraction?
