    Fun isn't it. This was about 20 seconds (tripod, obviously) at a very small aperture (lots of sharpness), and a polariser. Neat trick if you can make it work.

    The maple leaf one is my fave by far. Although I did just change my desktop to the head-on pic of the stream (b/c i have a widescreen and it looks better than my fave maple leaf one).

    What kind of camera do you use? Do you have a link on here talking about your photography?
    Thank you kindly! A Canon EOS300D (also known as a digital rebel in North America) which is a digital SLR. Usually my pictures are with a 17-40L lens (very expensive but the results are worth it, in my experience) and a polariser.

    There is no specific link to my photography but search for threads started by me or look in this folder for some other examples.

    The maple leaf is my favorite too. I love the sun shimmering on the stones and the ripples in the water.

    I'd love to see more. Great job! Really, really great.
    Thank you. I cheated by the way, I dropped the maple leaf in the water and snapped as it floated away. I guess it isn't a bad cheat, just encouraging nature to be in the right place at the right time

    I am also impressed with how well you kept both the foreground and background in focus (with a Digital Camera ?)

    Mind if I steal the lighthouse ones for my computer wallpaper?
    (I think they're the right aspect ratio).
    Sure, go ahead. PM me if you want the much higher res original. To get both in focus you need a larger exposure, plus as the digital camera has a 1.6 multiplier over a standard SLR that gives better depth of field too.

    I love Nova Scotia, it's a photographer's dream. But, thankyou.

    Geoff,

    What grade of neutral filter do you recommend for general daylight long-exposure photography? My camera does not go below ISO 200.

    Is the second one polarized?

    Very nice photos Geoff!

    lbloom, I use a polarizer and small aperture to get long exposures without the need for a neutral density filter. Of course, I'm shooting with ISO 50 film .

    ISO200 is a little unhelpful, isnt it. Hmm.

    I dont tend to use an ND filter. I am usually polarised which loses 2 stops. Then add a small aperture and... well... under the trees f22 with a polariser is frequently 5-15 seconds anyway

    I like the idea of an ND grad for sunsets and the like, but have avoided making the leap because I dont want to spend hours fiddling with filters.

    My usual tactic is just to handhold and leave the polariser on. Carry a light tripod so if the polariser costs me some shake I'll steady it rather than take off the filter. Ya, I know its not that professional but usually I'd rather have fun than spend hours playing with filters.

    So therefore, yes, all of the 17-40L shots will be polarised. The zoom shots never are (I can't afford the loss of light with a zoom lens and the extra shake from the longer reach).

    -Geoff
