    Here are a couple of photos from a selection that I took today.
    If I'm going right then please tell me. And the same if I'm going wrong... :)
    BTW, what's the best way to go about taking a photo from a shaded area into a sunlit area? Are blown out highlighs unavoidable in these situations or is there a way to counteract or reduce this problem?

    Cheers

    Today was the first time that I've used a slow shutter speed when photographing water. This stream provided a good opportunity to give it a try. I think the shutter speed for this photo was two seconds. I got the desired effect. :smashin:

    A B&W conversion of an autumn scene. Does the photo suit B&W? I think it does..

    Some very nice shots there para :thumbsup:

    I prefer the B&W one, nice mood to it, I like the way it leads your eye along the path.

    The water is a bit blown out in your long exposure... an ND filter would sort you out for those sort of shots. ;)

    I recently bought a neutral grey ND4 filter. I guess I should have used that.
    Also hoping to pick up a grey ND Grad to darken the skies when needed. :smashin:
