    this can be done by using a slow shutter speed, it can range from a few seconds to a few minutes depending on your settings and available light.

    that isn't really silky smooth yet.

    but yes, it has to do with shutter speed.as for how long to smooth out, it depends on the water condition and wave condition.

    to extend shutter speed, you need ND filter. hope this helps.

    yes, you do

    unless you want your shot to come out super shaky and abstract

    Also, remember that the shot you used as an example is the "smoke water" effect combined with HDR processing.

    Im sorry if this has been as a million times but, is there a guide on HDR processing which doesnt darken the landscape and make the sky more vivid like the one i posted in #1?

    Below is an image of my HDR processing, i'm really new to all this so please pardon me.

    That's not HDR at all... Just google "how to HDR" to get tutorials. But remember, you need to have a good set of pictures of varying exposures to begin with. If in all your photos the ground is dark, then the HDR won't do anything.

    Hi Rashkae, thanks for your info. I've followed the link billycadiz provided and have came up with the following;



    Does the above image count as a HDR processed image?

    actually, i think you might consider going easier on the processing than what soulfly does.

    anyways, to each his own.

    It's much better, but I think your input images are not good enough.
