    ........and yes they are of waterfalls.

    These 3 images were taken at a conservation area near Hamilton, ON just above a small town called Dundas. C/C's welcome. Levels and Curves adjusted in PS.

    wow very nice shots! I especially like the third one, where you not only caught the motion of the waterfall but also the individual streams (for lack of a better word). :biggrin:

    I didn't know they had falls like that in Dundas. My wife's sister used to live there, and never mentioned it. :grumpy:

    I would think so, but you would lose some of the softness if you had overhead sun. The first image (which has overhead sun) was taken at 1/3sec with the smallest aperture, so without the ND filter I would have been forced to correctly expose at around 1/30. 1/30 will still give you motion sense, not quite as soft. If this were on an overcast day, the correct exposure without the filter may allowed the shutter speed to slow down the 3 stops to achieve the same shot.

    Google 'Spencer Gorge'. It is just north west of Dundas (just up the escarpment) and just off of Hwy 8. You should see signs, the larger falls are called 'Webster's Falls' and there is another section of falls nearby called 'Tew's Falls'. If you're ever in Canada.
