Divine Flow by WiDoWm4k3r Divine Flow by WiDoWm4k3r
I could go to this place every weekend if it wasn't so far away.
This is Warburton and some of the streams/falls in those parts, it's quite a beautiful place.

I know there's a Warburton in Victoria, Australia, not far to the east of Melbourne. I've managed to get some stunning photos in the area too :)

I didn't use any filters, Kit Lens stopped down haha, I had no idea it was possible to get this kind of shot with that setup, but it is.. just needs to be the perfect scene and day.

Thanks for the comments, I'm happy to hear you like it =)

This is amazing. I can see why you'd want to go back all the time.
How do you get the mist effect? I've tried slow shutter speeds but it just comes out really bright.

Well the way it's done, and it will vary depending on the scene (by which I mean if the sky is in the shot or not)
With sky not in the shot or how much sunight is on the water, you can take a single long exposure, heighten your aperture but not too much, generally lenses start to lose sharpness past f8.
If the sun light is concealed by clouds or the trees above you'll get a longer exposer, half a second is long enough to get the water looking milky but the longer you take the exposure the creamier it gets. You can use a Neutral Density Filter though, which will reduce the amount of light that gets through to the sensor allowing you (forcing you to, rather) to lengthen exposure and get the creamy water look.
Without the filter and with the sky in the shot, a good way to do this is take 2 shots, one long exposure up to about a second, and one standard exposure, and use photoshop layer masks to (or stack them on top of each other and use the eraser if you don't know how to use mask layers) and reveal the sky, as it will be over exposed.
It's really a lot easier to just buy a ND filter to be honest, a good quality one would be preferable, like a Hoya Pro-d or something like that, of if you have the cash a B+W. Anything above 3stops light reduction will get you the effect you want but you can exposure for a longer period the darker the ND filter, you can get 10stop filters that let you long expose broad daylight up to 30 seconds, which are cool for twilight coastal shots or shots of small piers, you get that glowey haze (which is actually traces of waves through out the exposure) around the cliffs/pier and stuff like that.

Without filters is a lot trickier, which is why I like doing it, but with will give you a guaranteed positive result without potentially heavy post editing. =)

Definitely can be a real pain, I have a technique to overcome this kind of thing now at least though, that one fernwas a bit of a pain at the time though.

Well I take a normal exposure which freezes the trees, stops them from blurring through the lengthened exposure for the ware flowing.
Then align the layers and erase the moving ferns and blend the layers, works nicely =D

harrietsfriend Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2011  Professional Photographer
thanks.
does this mean you are taking more than one exposure and with different focus points, since you will have lost the depth of field the longer exposure contained. I'll save this and try it out.

Same focal point, one under exposued to freeze the tree, one long exposure to 'cream' the water =)
