Awash by Valimar Awash by Valimar
I've been dipping my toes into the world of long exposures recently, inspired by the many great artists on DA who use this technique in their photography.

Image was captured with a circular polariser and an ND8 filter, giving me the necessary exposure length to blur the water to how I wanted it.

Final toning was applied in PS. :)

Really nice job. I like how the rock is sharp while water looks like fog. It looks like mountain :O

Almost looks like the water is swirling mist around the stone - very moving and poetic

Thank you.

Well I don't have a 5D, I shoot with a Nikon D70. It's OK, but the noise control can be a bit bad when it comes to long exposures, though this doesn't matter so much when it's converted to B&W, as it looks like film grain. :)

Looking forward to seeing any shots you produce using this technique. :nod:
