First of all I am a newbie to dslr and so far I'm doing pretty good.

Yesterday we went out to lunch to a Restaurant and there was this water fountain outdoors - there was plenty of daylight, in fact was one of those nice sunny warm days.

I took a shot of the water fountain in AV mode, the shot came out nice but it freezed the water. I wanted to slow down the shutter speed to create a blur of the water but the shot came out way over exposed.
I tried the same shot in M mode and same results I could either the water freezed or the shot over exposed.

How can I accomplish this in daylight?

I'm sorry if this is not the right forum to be asking this question.

very high aperture, slower shutter speed, low iso.


or a neutral density Filter

In addition to a ND filter, you will also need a tripod because of the slow shutter speed needed to blur the water.

Try Tv mode, 1/10th shutter speed, ISO100. An IS lens is like a portable tripod.
