To change it up a bit but still staying on the same path this image is digital. I know it's such a powerful thing to say "I took a digital image". The reality is that digital gets more attention than it deserves. Until digital equipment, cameras and lenses, equal at an affordable price what a film camera can do then I don't see the big deal. I have to admit that the older I get the more patient I get. I don't feel the need for a quick, instant gratification, feel with my art, any art. Why should I be rushed to take an image of a life time of a bride and groom. They have their whole life in front of them the lest we can do is slow down and take a few minutes to get the best image possible. Heck, even this photo of a stream would have been rushed by me years ago. Not this one though. I took it about 2 months ago and was shot with a Hoya 400x ND filter. What's that mean? Well it means that in the middle of the day I was able to make an exposure for 175 seconds. That's almost three minutes! No sense in rushing mother nature.
