    I like the contrasts in that Bobster.

    One from an earlyish walk round the back of Haweswater.

    Are you a professional photographer? Or do you just find the most amazing places and take a photo?
    And how do you get the water to look so "silky"?

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Thanks for the compliment mate. Professional walker - new starter at the photography bit. I walk a fair bit round here - best way to de-stress I know. Couldn't sleep so got up at 5ish and had a wander round Haweswater. Favourite time for pics is early or late. Not much light so long exposure had the nice effect on the water. If I'd been at that point a bit earlier it would have been better as the lake could have been made to look really silky as there was quite a bit of surface movement.

    Had a DSLR for about 5-6 weeks now and still exploring it. Before that it was just a wee point and shoot.

    Very basic, longer than normal exposure. Depending on the speed of the water will determine how much longer you need. Madduck's link is very helpful. I wish I had known about Neutral Density filters as I had the problem of there being too much light a few times whilst trying it out.

    For example, I wanted to do the same affect here: -



    But there was too much light (and people walking across as well! ). However, when I got to the top, there was enough shade to do this: -



    Mind you, there's no problem at night!



    (This also shows the disadvantage of using the Gorilla Pod with out some sort of level indicator! Can't rotate and crop either as it cuts the top of the centre fountain off. )

    That's because your iso is stuck at 800 you can get a longer exposure if you lowered it to 100

    Hope you don't mind but I took the liberty of a quick shop-crop-n-clone....

    Yeah, I didn't know anything about ISO (I could argue I still don't!) when I took them.

    Cheers for straightening my picture. I still haven't really had a good play around with post-processing yet.

    ISO is how sensitive the sensor on your camera is.

    At ISO 100 - say you needed 1 second shutter speed to get the correct exposure
    At ISO 200 you would need only 0.5 seconds to get that same exposure
    At ISO 400 you would need only 0.25 seconds to get that same exposure..

    and so on and so on...

    however the larger your ISO number is, the more grainier your pictures will be. Large ISO's are thus normally used indoors where there is generally less light available.
