    I have tried a lot of different settings and used various ND filters but I can't seem to get that perfect bright silky water effect. Nikon d60 with 18-55mm. ND4. Any tips or what I should do?!? C&C please!!!!!

    There's no EXIF data on your images, so I have no idea what shutter speed you used, but (to a point) the longer the better. I generally use between 2.5 and 4 seconds, depending on the speed at which the water is moving.

    Yeah, you're really not providing any information necessary to help with these images. To repeat the above poster, the longer the exposure, the better. Meaning your smallest aperture and usually a neutral density filter. Try as long an exposure as you can.
