Top Photo Award on GuruShots

I am pleased one of my Lake Bled pictures was awarded Top Photo Winner in the Vacation Destination challenge on GuruShots!

Somewhat unexpectedly, rather than being a sunrise or sunset shot, my best performing image of Bled (Slovenia) was taken during the day.

I am going to publish a Behind the Shot post soon, but there is something I want to share with you right away: the use of neutral density filters in harsh light (or, in general, daylight) has taken my landscape photography to the next level.

In this case, I used a big stopper - i.e. a 10-stop ND filter
That allowed me to increase the shutter speed to 63 seconds and get a very nice, smooth reflection of Bled Island on super silky waters.
Try that out if you haven't yet ;-)
