So I got Spike to sit still, motionless for a 10 second exposure!

Really? - No not at all she couldn't sit still for 1/10th - So I took the picture of her at 1/100th second, then let her go as I reset the camera (using the inbuilt ND filter) and took a 10 second exposure.

Add a little Photoshop to copy and paste Spike (and her shadow) from one to the other, back in lightroom to add seasoning and there you go.

Nice job. I haven't been there for a long while but it's a nice little waterfall and the long exposure has worked well.
