Here's a Shot taken with a B&W 10 Stop filter, What do you think?
1D Mark 4
17-40 @ 33mm
ISO 50
f11
59 sec.

you asked, so...I do a lot of LE...and one thing I always have at the front of my mind when considering a scene for an LE,...what will the image gain in dynamics from shooting a 1 minute exposure or in many of my cases longer than that?

In this scene, the only thing you stand to gain as I see it, is movement in the trees, and an even harder time balancing your exposure from the lights to darks. Those water cascades are going to look almost the same with a 1-3 second exposure as they do now, not a lot of white water after them, no swirls or eddies, so for me, the little bit of details lost in the trees from the long exposure hurt more than you gained by going out to 1 minute. And with the 17-40L, a good as it is, the edges vignette, and this is exaggerated by using a Big Stopper so you end up with dark corners.

I might have also tried to make the cascades the main element, get closer and fill the frame more with them, as they are now, they are small in the frame...looking at your Flickr page, you did that...and I like that shot much more, it eliminated the dark areas, made the cascades a bigger part of the frame...it still has the movement in the trees from the LE...its more evident in that one.

Thanks for the CC it is appreciated, that's how I'll learn.

The LE wasn't for the trees it was to get the water shorter exposures didn't give me the desired effect on the cascades or the waterfall. I understand 2hat you meant by the other framing I'll post it later today. For others to see.

I used a circular B&W on this shot so it wasn't the big stopper causing vignetting, the B&W or the 17-40 may cause it but the top right side of the photo does not have a vignette. I think it was caused by the fact I was shooting from under a canopy of evergreens that caused the darkening. That is one of the features of this photo that I like: the darks& llights with the smooth water and intense colors. This waterfall is the cleanest & clearest that I think I've ever shot.

thanks again for the CC any additional is welcomed

I'm pretty sure this is the photo that TRhoads mentioned he saw on Flickr. Same settings as my last shot I was just in a little different place,
1D Mark 4
17-40L @ 33mm
f11
ISO 50
59 Sec.
B&W 10 Stop Filter

I lightened up the watermark a bit, I may reduce the size a little also

Some good shots, but it seems like water, water everywhere! How about some shots with NO water? These filters are good for more than just shooting water.

The whole purpose of long exposures is blur movement. the mosr accessible subject is wster or clouds. Criticizing others for their choice of subjects when you have 31 total posts is akin to going to a party at a strangers house and criticizing their furniture.
