    If you don't mind giving out some secrets:
    Does this use a neutral density filter, and if so, what sort of range of values do you use?

    I've always loved these shots of moving water but never managed it myself.

    no secrets
    no filters used at all, just changed the f number to as high as it would go (f29), camera on tripod, remote release, ended up 1/3 second exposure.

    hope that helps you

    After seeing those, I was saying to Tugs, "I have been drinking single malts for some time, but never thought about their colour before - but now I realise, youve only got to look at the water here, and the colour of Old Pulteney, and it all makes sense!

    Dont know anything about photography but agree with you there. Looks more like a painting than a photograph.

    Is it just me or are the pictures gone....
    In mitigation Mr Bruce de Wert said his client had been drinking and could remember little of the incident.
