LOL! The Arizona shots where during the ATS Conference. Doesn't that show dedication? I haven't seen you at any of the arachnid gatherings this year. ;P

Thanks Trivia! It is, I need to get out and do some more traveling. :)

Two long exposures of "The Cribs" in Lake Superior - Duluth, Minnesota

Cb that last shot is absolutely gorgeous!

Especially if it was taken with a camera phone.

Technology these day, sheesh, it's gotten so good!

Love that pic too, cb! Awesome!

Also Chad - how the hell do you get those pics looking like they do? The Minneapolis shots, as well as the twinfalls ones are just awesome! But I imagine those pic that some afterwork before looking like that, right?

Sorry I missed these questions!

I was using Nikon's entry level D3100 for a few years but am currently using the D7100 and looking a buying the new D500 for birding/wildlife while keeping the macro set-up permanently attached to the D7100. :)

The "movement" you are seeing whether cars or water is captured using long exposures. The shutter is open for longer period of time capturing the movement. Lakes for instance, if you look at the Lake Superior shot, the shutter was open for at least 30 seconds or so maybe longer. That lake is not a calm lake but the long exposure smooths it out, creating that effect. The issue with long exposures (especially during the day) is you will over expose the image. That is where neutral density filters come in. Image putting really dark sunglasses over the lens to block the amount of light coming in. :)

The stream was shot with:
Nikon D7100
Tokina 11-16mm w/ Hoya ND400 Neutral density filter (I think it's 8 stops) @16mm
SS 20sec - f8 - ISO100

Thanks I PRETTY sure you had 20s as I've used that exposure as well for that effect. Thanks!

How do you like the Tokina?
