Okay, finally got out my ND filters for the first time. Am I going in the right direction at least?

I've never used an ND filter, so this might be a dumb question, but is it normal to have the purple-ish/blue-ish colors like on the front of the rock and where the water is first sloping down? Looks a little off to me.

Well the ND just smooths the water. Sometimes they are known to leave a magenta cast, I think, but in this case it was the processing that worked in the colors.

Thanks for looking.

Bill, I'm digging it!

I'd look into taking a lil off the top and bottom - this would get rid of the darker part in the lower left that pulls the eye some.

How much shadow recovery did you do on that rock? Might want to pull back a touch if you were really aggressive with it.

Cheers,

Jeff

Thanks. Quite a bit of recovery. I feel disoriented if there's not SOMETHING sharp in the picture. :lol:

I Like that you pushed the colors, but you may have gone a bit far. It looks a little like chromatic aberration. Even with that, it is still pretty. The composition is very nice too.

I agree. Colors are a little much. Try going longer exposure too. 1 second isn't very long. How many stops is your nd filter?

It's a little over processed, I know. The SOOC was so monochromatic I think I panicked. :lol: thanks for looking and the comments.

Didn't think much about the shutter once I got started. As you can see it was f/18 and in the shade <!> As it was I could barely see what I was shooting at. ND8. But, yes, I should have had a longer exposure. First time, as i said. Will work on this.
Thanks for looking and the comments.

That's your age talking. I'm so old, I would have expected Hemingway. Or at least George C Scott. (look it up :lol: )
