  1. These were great shots. I’m going to have to try that too. I took some pictures using different aperture settings but that didn’t work as well as I wanted.

    • Thank you, Arun. A small aperture (f/16 or f/19) did 2 things: 1. Got most of the picture in focus, and 2. Helped reduce the light hitting the sensor enough to allow slower shutter speeds to blur the water. Around 1 sec and you still have some texture/detail in the water, but anything over 2 sec is so blurred the water begins to look surreal. A polarizer or neutral density filter can help you get the shutter speed you want at the desired aperture setting. Have fun!
