    ND Filter maybe? Allows for longer exposures than usually possible during the day I believe. I would wait until someone qualified answers though. :lol:
    I have been wanting to do this as well. I will have to try this out. :thumbup:

    BTW: I'm not sure if that is your photo or not, but I think that it is against forum rules to post someone's photos that aren't your own.

    Put the camera is shutter speed priority and slow it down as much as you can without over exposing. A filter can help here too.

    Yes, I do still need an ND filter which should help a lot. And yes, this IS my picture, so I guess I will take that as a compliment?

    I'm just getting started in photography, but I just wanted to compliment not only the moving water in this picture, but the composition as well. The water looks softer as you look in the foreground, in contrast to the background which looks a little sharped. I can't really think of anything you could do to make it better, as I am not a professional, aside from maybe cropping just a little bit of the foreground.. Overall, great picture!

    Long shutterspeed, small aperture an your lowest iso. A tripod is a must.

    I would title this photo, Misty Cold Water.

    I love it as is, I would be interested to see what effect the ND filter would have on such a shot.

    Shot looks pretty good to me. The ND filter will help with longer shutter speeds especially when you have much more light around.
