Last weekend I was out shooting in Yorkshire Dales, although it started as a trip to Cumbria and a location I had never visited before. Here is one of the shots that I took and for once, it was only a couple of meters from where we parked the car.
I was able to blur the movement of the water using a combination of my Kase polarising filter and 3 stop ND filter. This slowed the shutter speed just enough to create the blur but retain some of the detail in the water. I made sure that I rotated the polariser fully before deciding on the correct position where the movement was most obvious.
The RAW file was converted using Lightroom and post-processing effects were added in Alien Skin Exposure X3. This involved applying the Kodak Ektar film effect, followed by selective adjustments to emphasise the movement of the water.
I hope you like the image and have a great weekend.

Lovely—thanks, Robin. I hope you have a great weekend, too!
Well done, and thank you! I don’t take the trouble to thank you regularly for your images and for what you have taught me, but I much appreciate both.
Thank you. Much appreciated.
The result is quite ‘elegant’, if I may say! Very nice.
Thank you very much
Very nice image; almost like an impressionist painting. Hope the weather stays good for you up in the north.
very fine work, well done
