    Interesting dreamy effect... tone-mapped??? Fuzzy on purpose? (I mean besides the water, of course)

    whats the method of getting the water to be milky or foggy like that, when I have tried to accomplish it thru a longer exposure during the day, the whole phot just gets blown. would love to learn this

    Here are some tips that might help:

    -shoot on a dull overcast day
    -lock you ISO to its lowest setting, (100) etc
    -switch to (aperture priority mode) and lock aperture to (f/16 or f/22)
    -use a tripod with the self timer (if lens has VR or IS make sure it is off)
    -set exposure compensation dail to (-1/3 or -2/3 to prevent clipping)
    -bring a microfiber cloth to wipe stray mist and water drops getting
    on the lens also use a UV filter to protect the front lens coating from
    water mist and stray water drops etc

    NOTE Avoid walking on wet rocks and logs there are VERY DANGEROUS,
    stay on the dry and level trails and just zoom in to points of interest.

    Hope this helps.

    Take care,

    Dwayne Oakes

    The other thing that will help on this is using neutral density filters. These filters are designed to darken the scene without changing anything else. This allows you to use a longer shutter speed and not overexpose the shot.
