Another one of the Cascade at Virginia Water. Long exposure and also used a polariser. The only slightly tricky thing here was having to clone out half a dozen people that were sitting/standing in the top third of the shot

Very nice, I can't tell where you had to clone out people at all. Thats something I need to learn how to do yet.

Thanks, Brian... Three people were sat on the rocks next to the tree in the middle, and there were another 3 or 4 in front of and behind the tree to the left. Cloning isn't that difficult to do - especially with a leafy background, as it's a random pattern. Just clone from different areas of the background with a little softness. Mix it up with slightly less opacity and merging different parts, just to make it look a little more random. The trick is to avoid repetition and patterns, otherwise it looks faked.

Just to give an idea of scale, the larger of the boulders towards the middle of the top third of the shot was about 4ft high
