Best and easiest option is to get an ND filter. Filter size is dependent on the lens you're using. Kenko and Hoya make cheap entry level ND filters which don't leave too much color cast. Of course the trick is to find a place where there isn't as much sunlight and you will get a good enough exposure, even without an ND filter.

You were probably overexposing by keeping the shutter for too long. You have to keep eye on the exposure meter and not randomly slow the shutter speed.

In such a situation, first click at the longest exposure you can without over exposing the image and then click some 15-20 images more. Then merge them all in Photoshop/Lightroom to get long exposure equivalence.

For example, I took around 20 images at 1/20 of the seconds and merged them all in PS to get the below effect.
20 images at 1/20 of a second will get out an equivalent exposure of 1sec.

Go through this video tutorial, I applied the same technique.
Watch from 2:40 mins for this technique.

Of course, getting a ND filter is an easy way to do it. But till you buy one, you can try this out.
thanks bro
will give it a try

this is one of the pic which I tried ...it was getting too exposed. In case if I had a ND filter then image would have been more sharp.

Sharpness has nothing to do with ND filter.


To shoot a water fall without an ND filter, the choice of time for the shoot would be important.
In bright sunlight, getting long shutter times may be difficult.
Choose a time when the light is low....early morn or late evening.
Keep a small aperture, say f 22 or smaller.
Spot meter off the brightest part of the water fall.
Open up a stop or two.
Make sure you have a tripod.
Fire away.
This is with all manual settings.

Let the camera manage exposure in such conditions. Put it in aperture priority mode with aperture set to 16 or 18 and ISO at 100. Whatever speed you get, be satisfied with it or wait for later in the evening.

Hello
I am facing some difficulty in processing my images in PS & CS from last few weeks, prior to that it was working fine.

I have a Nikon D3300 & I always shot in RAW. From last 2 weeks I am unable to process those images on my laptop in PS nor in CS. I have given a try on another PC as well however it is also not working in favor.

Could you please suggest what could be the problem?

Though I have submitted it to Nikon Service Center however they claim that they are not bothered about any other software, instead I should only use Nikon View NX2, however taking a clue of its limited functionality I am little resisting in using the same.

I know Service Center people would not do anything, but wanted to know if it could be a camera problem or sd card problem or some issue with my laptop.

Please suggest
ACJ
