One of a number of waterfalls in Lumsdale Valley.

Used a long shutter speed to blur the flow of water

Maximum zoom used to remove distractions from the base of the waterfall

The shot is very overexposed, though you did achieve the water effect.

Did you use a tripod, - I assume yes?

Metering for a shot like this is important, and artial metering in this case wasnt a great choice.

So lets say your back at this location and setting up. You have decided on 0.5 seconds with shutter priority. Use SPOT metering while you hold the camera, and place the focus point on the brightest water; NOTE the aperture reading; then go to manual mode, and use your shutter speed, and the aperture you noted, then back on the tripod and take the shot. Review the resulting image carefully, and is adjustments to exposure are needed, adjust the aperture only. Too bright where the highlights are flashing red, - then close down the aperture (bigger number) and vice versa.

Hope this helps. Two mods uploaded with highlights severely toned down, but its still too bright, as there zero detail in the water at the top. View large

hi iosatel , i like this sort of image your going for but , i know its really hard to do , i think a nd filter goes along way to getting the image your after . but i am just learning and getting over exposed images myself . but am getting there by using iso 100, small apeture F22, polarising filter is giving me about 20 seconds exposure in low light

Willie covers it. You are over exposed. Your LCD will tell you this. Take the trouble after exposure to look at the image on the LCD, use the histogram feature on the camera if you understand it OK, then re-shoot as necessary. You could do with something in the frame to act as a focal point with such images.
