You couldn't shoot that without a ND filter?

Let’s see: using “sunny f16”, at f/2 ISO100, shutter speed would need to be 1/6400s. Max shutter speed on the D750 is 1/4000s.

Adding the ND brought that down 3 stops to 1/800s. So the answer to your question is no.

I'm basing my question on your EXIF settings. You can achieve the same exposure using ISO 50 at 1/3200 second, both of which the D750 supports. For greater subject separation, you should consider using a longer focal length. What you're getting at f/2 using this lens is nothing special or interesting.

Yes, I agree with using a longer focal length lens. A 35mm lens does not give a person the isolation of the subject as well as a longer length lens. A nd filter is used for scenes like wanting to slow the shutter speed down for waterfalls or other scenes.

Agreed. Use of a ND filter in this shooting situation makes very little sense.
