    So I couldn't wait until tomorrow morning and went shooting with my new 12-35.

    I wanted to get a long exposure at Watson's Mill (I've shot there before: https://www.mu-43.com/f60/ottawa-old-mill-46578/) and so I braved the elements, grabbed my tripod and off I went:

    photo.

    Happy to report that both did just fine with, at first, some drizzle, and then an actual shower :p

    Shots capture to come soon (if I got any good ones)!

    Thanks! Do I sense sarcasm haha?

    Shot at ISO 200, f22, -3 exp comp, 10secs shutter, and ND8 filter.
    Still wasn't "dark" enough though. I could have used the E-P5's ISO 100 feature, or another ND filter :p

    haha no, I like the movement near the trees... you shot this at f/22? :eek:

    btw, If I may.. I dunno how slow the water is in that river but I think you can get away with 2-3seconds exposure only that way you can stay well below the difraction limit (f/5.6-f/8) on these smaller sensors.

    You might also get more movements/details on the lower part of the image. :biggrin:

    You absolutely may!
    Thanks for the tip I'll try that tomorrow.
    This place isn't too far from home.

    :thumbup: btw, Great colors and all even though you shot this in cloudy conditions.

    I hate shooting with gray skies, makes everything so dull :mad:

    I went out yesterday and took some shots, none were long exposures but damn the clouds just takes the fun out of it all, no colors, no contrast nada!! :frown:

    Thanks for the kind words, grey skies are hard to work with indeed.
    I used Lightroom to recover some of the colors, guess it worked :)!

    Yeah, I have a CP I stack with an ND8. I never want to go beyond f/8 due to diffraction. The main trick is to shoot at sunset.

    I like the shot though. :)
