Tried my first waterfall, and I wish i would have had my tripod with me.
Yes, tripod and long exposures are two things that MUST go together.
The exposure was so long, the water is on the brink of being overexposed and losing detail (what little detail there is in deliberately "foggi-ed" water, of course). The little splash you got onto your lens is distracting. But it is a good first attempt. My first attempts were a lot worse - I would not have dared to show them to ANYONE!
agreed a tripod is a big help, in keeping steady and in making sure your shot is level and not tilted like this. basically, im saying everything Lafoto said. the shutter is open so long that the water is almost over exposed. maybe try a faster one but still slow enough to create this effect.Good first attempt none the less!
