A Quiet Saturday Morning

Good morning folks! It’s a wonderfully warm and sunny morning here in southeast Texas. A far cry from where my friends in Montana are getting snow in April.

Here’s a simple shot I took at dusk a few weeks ago using a Singh-Ray Vari-ND-Duo filter to achieve a slow exposure creating the silky look to the flowing water. Click on the image below to view the larger size. The secret to this type of shot is using a tack sharp lens on a sturdy tripod to create an image with incredible sharpness and detail in the rocks contrasting with the smooth flowing water.

Quiet Falls

Shot taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II set on aperture priority (Av) using an EF 24-104mm f/4L IS USM lens tripod-mounted. The exposure was taken at 98mm, f/16 for 3.2 seconds at ISO 100 using a Singh-Ray Vari-ND-Duo neutral density filter. All post capture processing was done in Adobe’s Lightroom 3 Beta 2.
