Somewhere in Exmoor...

August 6th, 2010

A wonderful but nameless river in Exmoor, South West England, running through Wilmersham Wood at this point. It joins and is joined by numerous other small rivers, eventually splitting in two.

This is one of many pictures I took along the river, with my new 10-20mm lens and 10-stop ND filter. Shot at 10mm, 125 seconds, f/4, ISO100.

Pentax K-7, Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC, B+W ND110, Adobe Photoshop CS4 Camera Raw.

Great colours, excellent composition but the very slow exposure has blurred the top left side and the water(?) looks like plastic.
Any chance you have a normal exposure of this ? I would love to see that !

The bottom of the picture is little gray though. It just needs a bit more contrast or perhaps less brightness in bottom lines.

Shot of the month!

I really don't think the water at the bottom is right, it looks like plastic.

The water does not look real to me in the bottom half of the picture. What is being done to the water on this picture? I have seen other pictures doing the same and I guess I'm not a fan of it.

The plastic-looking water is caused by the long exposure I used (Just over two minutes). I've only just got the ND filter, so perhaps with more experience I'll be able to get more realistic water - I may have overdone the exposure this time!

I think the blurring in the top left may actually be partly caused by the distortion at 10mm too, and I'm afraid I don't have any 'normal' length exposures. I was enjoying using the ND filter too much!

Thanks sabern, you may be right about the contrast, it's down to personal taste I suppose.

Thank you very much for the comments/favourites!

Thanks Frostmint, it certainly felt something like that!

This is excellent Adam. Exposure is fantastic here. I think you nailed this shot. Plastic? Nope ... it's called long exposure and do I love it? Yes I do. Waterfalls look fantastic with long exposure and it's a widely known fact. Thank for sharing this wonderful wallpaper.

Thanks Igor, I really appreciate the comment!

I think the look of water over a long exposure is just a certain effect that some people love (me included!) and some people aren't so keen on. Everyone likes it their own way. (:

I think it's a great shot, at least well treated in post, good sharpening and light.
You deserve to have this online finally, after all the posts you had here before. I like them all.

Just as nice as the other 800 identical photos of the same scene.

Great picture... However, I always hate this unnatural water effect, I don't know how it started, and I don't even know WHY it started. Maybe because people want to give water a more "dreamy" and "aural" look, but I dig that. Maybe I just dont get it. I like the actual look of water.

If this scene were shot to freeze the water so that there was no blur to it, then the rest of the scene wouldn't look as nice. But thanks to the long exposure, everything looks fantastic.

A new favorite of mine! This one will need to have a mighty contender to dethrone it from my desktop :) cheers
