Fuji xpro-2, 27mm, f/16, 0,6s, ISO 200
Another spectacular waterfall near Rotorua. The challenge in shooting this one was to avoid the rafts and kayaks either coming down the fall (for the latter) or going up to it (for the former).

Recently, while discussing potential prints of flowing water with a client, I realised that I had never posted this photo on my blog. This was shot in the Jura mountains, and I love the near painting quality it has. It was during this session I realised that with rushing water I didn’t need long exposure times to get the amount of motion blur in the water that I like. I used a variant edit of this shot to illustrate my Long Exposure Tutorial.
Sunrise Under the Bay Bridge
Fuji x100s, 35mm, f/11, 14s, ISO 200 w. ND 64 external filter and ND 8 internal filter
It’s surprisingly difficult to do sunrise shots of San Francisco. The city is nearly always lost in fog until close to mid-day, and on my first day there last week I didn’t realise how lucky I was to catch this much of a sunrise, which is admittedly not much. Still, I quite liked the composition, with the wooden piles at the forefront and what little of the morning sunlight is visible directly under the bridge. I remain amazed at my x100s’ capabilities and am seriously thinking about ditching the Canon system altogether…
