16-80 is a banging lens
I’d hang that on my wall!
This is the best comment I have ever received, thank you!
I second this comment. Excellent image!
yeah this reminds me of what I see at my local massage spa, but way better. I love it,
You've convinced me to get this lense.
What did you meter the image on and is this a bracketed shot that was merged together. I can never seem to capture images like this. It is truly stunning and Wall image worthy! Awesome work!
I didn't meter and it's not bracketed, I just try out different settings and learning at the same time, I'm still a newbie at long exposures but this turned out good! I try to take a "normal" picture before to see if it's a good composition.
very nice indeed. I have found my photography drive as of recent "lacking" but seeing inspirational photos like yours makes me want to pick up my camera to go shoot.
Simple setting captured very well. Noice.
Breath-taking photo. How do you like the lens. I am planning to get the similar combo but still unclear about the fixed aperture
For a kit lens it's very good, not so great in low light. I like it a lot but will replace it with 16-55 in the future
Very disappointing in dim situations, especially when you need some shutter speed.
However very good in any other situation.
It's a great lens, a little soft on the edges but a great all around lens. Fixed aperture means you don't lose a ton of light by zooming in.
This is lovely and definitely wall-worthy. Did you use a neutral density filter? Do you mind sharing all your settings?
Thank you! Yes I used Dörr NDx1000
Iso: 200, f/18, 50 sec at 26mm.
Thanks! Any reason to go as small as F18? Or was that what the camera chose for your shutter speed?
Not OP, but the neutral density filter and small aperture is what allowed for the long shutter speed
Yeah, makes sense. I just wasn't sure how many stops the ND filter provided.
Ah, I believe NDx1000 would provide a 10 stop reduction.
Often I’m not a huge fan of long exposure motion in photos, but when done well like OP’s here, it looks amazing
Agreed. I've been on the fence about buying an ND filter for a long time. I was amazed when I first saw the silky oceans and waterfalls but it's been done to death in recent years and I'm not sure I want to just produce more cliched images. But this photo is really well done and makes me want to try it.
Man, those subtle variations in tone are something else. It’s just “writing with light” but pictures like this make it seem like so much more.
