    Default Europe's widest waterfall

    Got a B+W 46mm 1000x ND filter for my name day, and decided to test it out on some waterfalls. Impressive results! The 2.5x difference between this and the Hoya ND400 is noticeable, as I found the ND400 gave me shutter speeds of around 1-2 seconds, which is OK, but not enough for creamy water.

    Wow those are a nice set but number 3 really does it for me! Beautiful.
    I must looking into getting a good quality ND filter, I purchased one of those cheap adjustable ones and it was a total waste of money...

    Thanks!

    I definitely recommend starting out with a GOOD filter. The Hoya ND400 is excellent, as far as quality goes I do not see any difference, in fact it gives less of a color cast than the B+W. But like I said above, this B+W is 2.5 times darker, in some situations this makes or breaks the picture, in less well lit situations its also too dark.

    Very nice. Must have been very calm. I see relatively little movement in the plants and trees, except in the second one.

    It was quite calm, but nothing too special. The shutter speeds are not that long - the last picture is at 3.2 seconds. The pictures with the 12mm lens rarely show blur for foliage because its quite wide.
