Hi Terry,

Excellent movement of the water, great exposure here.
I like very much the effect of the light, the frame is perfect too for the composition.
TFS, great job.
My best regards.

Hello Terry,
Interesting and beautiful experiment. The chunk of concrete bottom left can be successfully cropped off and will even improve the image. This will hopefully prompt me to use the set of ND filters that has been lying here unused for some years. What a pleasure to view.

PS; I would not crop off as much as Maciej in his workshop but I think his workshop on your first entry is just fine, though.

Hi Terry,
You have successfully captured a sense of fluid and graceful motion contrasting against the sharp detailed rocks. I do agree that the slab of concrete is a bit of a eye sore, however a great presentation.

Good experiment Terry, nice waterfall combined with long exposure. I agree with the workshop. Well Done.


This is a very good idea to present three different tests about the ND filter and with different exposure.
According to my personal taste, I prefer that one with 3 seconds, the result of the smooth water pleases me better than 0.5 seconds.
This is a very nice place for photography.
I look forward to the result with 10 seconds.
Thanks for sharing this series.
