I don't really have any experience with long exposures, but I've been experimenting a little with the river out back under various lighting situations, just to get some kind of handle on it. It's been challenging, to say the least. I don't usually keep track of technical data (I'm confused enough as it is) but these were shot with a Canon 5D, 24/104mm lens at 105mm, f/22. Exposure were between 1/2 sec. and 1sec.

Great pictures guys. I do like the colored shots. But there is something special with the black and white shots also.

Nice images guys, I like them all. I really like the silky cotton candy look with moving water. To me it looks beautiful. I'll find and post some photos taken this year, got a bunch in the Adirondacks this summer. Some people, like my wife, don't like the look of it, says "it doesn't natural, thats not how the river looked on our trip". lol... And I say, next time, take your own pictures...lol..

Sorry, can't put a circular polarizer on this camera...

Silky shallow water!

Took last winter, but a bit overexposed. It had a shutter speed of 1/2 sec. That plus handshake = sad.gif

My first try at timed exposures ever...from my trip to India.
Sorry for that ugly timestamp, it was taken last year, when I didn't know how to turn it off. I don't remember the setting for this photo...

I have to wait til I get a DSLR before I can do the longer exposures and get better pics...so I can actually use a filter!

Frogfish, this isn't meant as criticism, so please don't take it as such, but the key to making good images is finding the right kind of light. If they're used properly, polarizers will cut glare and darken skies, but they won't necessarily prevent overexposure. There are plenty of people out there with expensive DSLRs and a bagfull of filters who are blowing out highlights hand over fist. My guess is that you can do great things with the camera you have. I made the image below with a pocket camera that cost just over $100.

They were all bright light conditions, so there was no hope from the beginning tongue.gif

Maybe I shoulda tweaked the ISO...
