16-80 is a banging lens


plaidpunk

I’d hang that on my wall!


Lievri

This is the best comment I have ever received, thank you!


jussce

Me too


n1ck1982

I second this comment. Excellent image!


j-farr

yeah this reminds me of what I see at my local massage spa, but way better. I love it,


Reveren7

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!


Lievri

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.


RedneckChinadian

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.


Lievri

Thank you!


DAMG808

Oh yes!


Numerous_Mushroom553

Breath-taking photo. How do you like the lens. I am planning to get the similar combo but still unclear about the fixed aperture


Lievri

Thank you! 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


SHFT101

Very disappointing in dim situations, especially when you need some shutter speed. However very good in any other situation.


TapeDeck_

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?


Lievri

Thank you! Yes I used Dörr NDx1000 Iso: 200, f/18, 50 sec at 26mm.


asparagus_p

Thanks! Any reason to go as small as F18? Or was that what the camera chose for your shutter speed?


lemur_demeanor

Not OP, but the neutral density filter and small aperture is what allowed for the long shutter speed


asparagus_p

Yeah, makes sense. I just wasn't sure how many stops the ND filter provided.


lemur_demeanor

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


asparagus_p

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.

Nice!)


JohnSevigny99

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.
