Decided to do an exposure stack test. 32*15 seconds exposures resulting in 8 minutes exposure.
Clean, noiseless.

I will use this further.. Could have saved me the 16 stop filter :(

see, that wasnt so bad  :p

I gotta sell off my 16 stop as well. Huge advantage of stacking is that you get noiseless photos AND you can focus and expose normally in camera without having to prefocus and do bulb calculations, which can be off if the ND doesnt match exactly to spec. Another advantage is that your test shot is only 15 seconds long as opposed to 8 minutes. It really sucks to do an 8 min exposure to find out that you're the slightest OOF because you bumped focus while mounting your filter.

disadvantage is that photoshop stacking is intensive and can take a long time, hence SR in body stacking is such a high value.

Definate advantage to stacking.
You can also clean up errors (junk) in the frame.

Have you tried doing a long sunset? how does the changing light affect such a long exposure?

I dont' intend to get rid of the 16 stop filter.. but I'm sorry i spent so much money on it!

Heya,

I have, here are some examples (just scroll till you see sunset). Also, the stacking info (# and length of exposures):

looks VERY overexposed and overly bright.
For the water you can use a polarizer to cut the reflection.. you could have also used ISO100 and not 200..
would be nice to see if the information can be restored.

I have processed it exactly as I want it. No data is missing. The clouds and water are very, very close to being clipped in my final file. The shots were underexposed by almost a stop when I shot them (this is a vertical panorama), but I didn't lose any shadow data.

I spent the weekend in The Great Smoky Mountain National Park...arguably my favorite place in the country...a bunch of firsts, which is why its a great place...been there 10 or 12 times and can always find new things to do.

2 Minutes. 9 Stops. A7R2 and 17-40L, ISO 50.

Yes...I know...most will say that not much gonna change at that duration over something shorter on a scene like this...I disagree and love what it does!

And yet another brilliant shot!

I totally agree about exposure time. The longer it gets the more even and balanced out is the lighting. A 20 second exposure might have blurred the water the same, but there clearly is a difference.

Thank you sir...very kind of you.

For me, the really long exposure refines the textures and patterns of the moving water, it reduces it down to the most common path...shorter means more irregularity, which was not what I wanted for this one. Glad you like it...

I'm no expert when it comes to bulb ramping, however due to ridiculous raw power from stacking, you should be able to recover a lot.

here's a sample where I just painted in the foreground, and it's extremely clean.

NOT a true ND shot, but a simulated one - 240 frames from a time lapse that I shot, stacked and blended, spanning 12 minutes. Thoughts?
