Playing with Shutter speed

Dot gave me an idea in one of her comments from a prior post. I was experimenting with shutter speed and movement. I found a nice stream next to a road and took the same shot with different shutter speeds. Note the corresponding change in aperture.

55mm focal length
Exposure 1/100 sec @ f5.6
ISO 100

Pretty much the same shot, but I kept the shutter open a while longer. The movement of the water has a nice blur to is.

55mm Focal Length,
Exposure 1/6 sec @ f22
ISO 100

You can use a ND filter to really make them smooth.

Shameless plug:

Thanks for the tip! I'm not fluent in filters, but it's something to learn. That's one cool shameless plug!
