Good capture Barrie. Did you use an ND filter or just the small aperture? Quite a moody image.

Best regards

Thanks Gary. It is a 10 stop ND @ f11, gave me 25 secs to flatten the water

Excellent photo. That hole always looks pretty scary to me.

Don't worry I was on dry land and zooms are wonderful things.

Lovely shot. Perfect demonstration of the ND filters uses, which cannot be replicated in pp.

Totally agree - plus I like the slightly muted tone of the whole image, suits it well

Great! - It does look scary!

I have no idea what the actual scene looks like, but just wondering - would the photo have had a less sinister feel if the water hadn't been flattened by the ND (assuming exposure for similar brightness, of course)?

Sorry Barrie, I can't understand what the skating rink look is supposed to do for this shot of a very dynamic, moving subject. Also it has proved impossible to 'smooth out' the water plunging down the overflow so we are left with an odd tension between that which ought to be moving and is still and that which is moving in a scene that pretends it is quite still.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thanks for your comments David. The water in the spillway was not that dynamic, just small wind generated ripples. My intention in using a long exposure was to remove their distraction and concentrate attention on the drain hole and detailed structures.
I'm sure others would produce different interpretations

Apologies Philip I don't know how I missed your comment. This is the "as is" scene

Thank you, Barrie. I prefer the natural look of the surface ripples on the water and the trails leading into the hole, but I do like the processing of the rest of the image in your first post.

Cheers.
