    I posted these at the "Tokina 11-16" thread, but I have never posted in the landscape forum, so...

    Taken on a horrible tripod...

    How do you like'em?
     
  2. Very silky - how long were the exposures?

    The first and third one were 30 seconds, the one in the middle was 1 second...

    You should post more often in the landscape forum - these are beautiful!

    I do prefer #1 and #3. if I had to choose one, #1 would be my pick. I like the tighter framing (or cropping), the sky in #3 is "flat" and from my point of view do not had anything worth to this shot. Maybe a HDR of this scene might have been interesting for getting a little bit more of the sky...

    I would like to see a crop of #3 without the sky, because the stream would lead to the fall and that might be interesting.

    Anyway, very nice shot, you're lucky to have found this very nice spot.
     
  6. Love your pictures all of them...they are beautiful. Thanks for the info on the exposure. I am trying for the "silky" look and have not been nearly as successful as you have here.
    Thanks for sharing

    how did you get such clear pictures with long exposures during the day?
     
  8. Spectacular. I like #3 the best, but they're all stunning. Iceland has long been on my list . . .

    Wow, thanks everybody! :smile: I really appreciate all the comments. I shot those 3 with the Tokina 11-16/2.8 (as i said before) and the D80...

    The sky in #3 was just plain dull! I tried to get something out of it, but nothing worked... The nature here in Iceland is just amazing!

    These were actually taken at 22:00 - 00:00. The aperture was somewhere around eleven - ISO 100...

    Thanks again! :biggrin:

    Joe :


    Nice work on these.

    And yes, Iceland's a pretty amazing location. I haven't been there since '82, but I have wonderful memories of the visit.

    stunning. #1 is my fav
     
  12. #1 and #3 look great. I'm a big fan of silky waterfall pics.
     
  13. beautiful pictures! #1 is #1 for me.

    question on the long exposure; did you use a CP and/or ND filter?

    Thanks! I was going to use a 3 stop ND filter, but when I arrived to those places, the light was just horrible, and no need for a filter...
