ND Filters Are a Must for Waterfall Photography

I took this shot yesterday at the New Croton Dam, which is one of the locations on my Croton Creative Workshop.

I used a Tiffen 2-8 stop ND filter to get a low shutter speed for the "soft and flowing" water effect.

Below is an uncropped shot w/out the filter.

Here's a movie on the use of the filter - another Rick's Quick Tip.

Other gear used for the photograph:
Canon 5D Mark IIICanon 24-105mm IS lens and Induro AT114 Tripod.

Really nice effect, this is my recent attempt without an ND Filter, I've used a polarising filter, waiting for my ND filters to be delivered.
