Great tyro 2014-11-19 2:12

Hello Les,

An interesting note and a lovely photograph capturing the autumnal colours perfectly.

I rather suspect that you might have used your "Big Stopper" or some other strong ND filter for this in order to achieve such a long exposure and that has given you a lovely artistic softness and blurring of the fast moving water of the Tavy. I know some people absolutely adore this effect while others simply hate it: I'm still sitting on the fence, enjoying the artistic quality but still not quite certain whether it really equates to reality!

Here, however, it has worked very well here and the brightness of the river contrasts well with the soft light and gorgeous autumn colours in the upper part of the picture. Your composition is excellent too with the lovely little bridge perfectly placed in the frame. And, as always, technical quality, exposure and sharpness are bang on.


Kind Regards,

Arrow To tyro: Autumn by the Walkham River

Hello John,
many thanks for your kind critique,actually on this occasion the light was already rather subdued down amongst the trees, so it was just a case of setting the aperture to f11 @ 2 seconds and using the trusty tripod.
After a sunny day yesterday we`re back to dull,dull,dull with the promise of sunshine later...
Warm regards Les.
