I took a walk today through a local country park, and thought i'd try a long exposure shot.

Never really tried this before.

I've not cropped the photo at all, or did any manipulation

Taken in RAW, f18, 6" exposure, ISO 100, with an ND8 filter.

Any comments and feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks for looking and all the previous C&C.

Camera:Sony A330

Well if you have never tried this before I think it's a very good first attempt! Nice shot.

I've uploaded a mod . . . . . just a thought.

Personally I'm no fan of smooth milky water but that's just my opinion and you've captured this very well, especially if you don't really know what you're doing!
Like Brian, I've removed the brickwork in the background and gone a bit further to tighten the crop further still.
Adjusted tone, colour, shadows and highlights, increased brightness and contrast (just a touch) and sharpened.

Just my opinion, hope it's OK.

Bren.

thanks for the mods and comments.

I Know it's a bit of a marmite technique, but since i joined the site and i've seen these, i've always wanted to try one.

I would've have preferred if i could have got more of the burn upriver, under the bridge, but the low branches and soft underfoot prevented me from going in much more.

Thanks again

You definately need to crop the top, then boost the contrast a bit to increase impact without going too far and loosing the detail in the white water.

I'm not keen on the creamy water thing, but you have to try, and you have done well. The trouble is they all start to look the same.
