Day at Newstead Abbey, Nottingham
5 months ago

So its finally stopped raining in the UK and ive been off work for the week, so as soon as the sun came out today i went off to try out the camera again.  Newstead Abbey is a really great place for pics, lots of different things from the house, formal gardens, japanese gardens and then the lakes.  Tried my best at the long exposure for the water falls, not having a filter to stop down made it more difficult but im pretty happy at my first go.

Thanks, I'm really happy with how they look, was actually able to do what I was hoping for with them. Just need some more nice days so I can shoot more.

Did you take any shots of falling water at high shutter speeds? I'd like to see the comparison of shots where the water flow is not softened by longer exposure.

Oh, to be in England...

You got quite effective background blur in your flower shots.  I'm envious of the opportunity to walk in the English countryside.

I only took one as i was trying to do the soft water for the first time. Here it is, still a nice shot but i just wanted to try the long exposures. Next on my shopping list is ND filter so i can do them a little easier without losing the sky.

@ elliotnewcomb - Ok you caught me, i thought i had got away with it They're a very nice flower, makes it easy to get a lovely shot.

I've never liked the smoothed water look at all. That makes the water look really refreshing.

My girlfriend said the exact same thing when I went over to show her what I had done, she said she preferred the frozen water better. I haven't decided which I like yet, I have seen some shots that look great and others that are a bit cheesy. I've been reading and watching as many YouTube things as I can because this is my first proper manual camera. So I was just happy that it actually work.

Enjoyed your images a lot, and since I recently moved to the area, I'm going to visit the place... as soon as we get some nicer weather.

Thanks for sharing
