Hello Les,

An interesting note and a lovely photograph capturing the autumnal colours perfectly.

I rather suspect that you might have used your "Big Stopper" or some other strong ND filter for this in order to achieve such a long exposure and that has given you a lovely artistic softness and blurring of the fast moving water of the Tavy. I know some people absolutely adore this effect while others simply hate it: I'm still sitting on the fence, enjoying the artistic quality but still not quite certain whether it really equates to reality!

Here, however, it has worked very well here and the brightness of the river contrasts well with the soft light and gorgeous autumn colours in the upper part of the picture. Your composition is excellent too with the lovely little bridge perfectly placed in the frame. And, as always, technical quality, exposure and sharpness are bang on.


Kind Regards,

Default Choosing a zoom lense

Hi Champs,
I am using Nikon D5100 DLR and I have Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S VR DX NIKKOR and Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX lenses. I like both of them and specially 35 mm prime one. I would like to buy another zoom lense. Can you guide me which lense would be good for zoom and also compatible with my gear. I have thought of the following lenses :
1> Tamron SP 70-300mm f4-5.6 VC
2> Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f4.5-5.6G IF-ED VR.
3> AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR

Can you help me on this also please let me know if you have some other lense in your mind which can produce good quality image and compatible. I know that it is more importent how we are using the lense but still initial idea will be helpful for me.

Many thanks,
Sunandan Saha
