    Hi, I'm new here and I started to like this forum.
    Anyway, I need help with waterfall "fog/blur" style. I tried to use 28-90mm and 18-55mm with 100 iso f5.6 in 5 to 10 sec slow shot.....it came out really bright during the day.

    I can better during the night....here's the photo I shot at night. Whats the best lens and setting for daylight.

    thank you

    If you want to do this during the day you can try a ND filter. This will darken things and give you the ability to use a slower shutter speed during the day.

    well, if your camera supports even lower ISO .. go for it.

    and use a tiny aperture, not f/5.6 ... but go up to f/22 or whatever is the minimum. Then a polariser will take away some further light, if you have one.

    If you want to go for the real deal, use an ND filter ... depending on how bright the day is, a 64x might do .. an 8x always seemed to weak for me.
