Hi everyone, I'm a graphic designer and I delved into digital photography about 2 years ago. I'm currently shooting with a Sony A290.

okay, i know i am using an old camera, sony a290 but it should not give this result.  i have several times made tried to make photos of waterfalls with no luck.  i have slowed the shutter speed down and put on a ND filter but my photos keep gettig washed out completely.  i can make 20 and one might turn out okay with an F32.  i can never shot on f16 etc and especially below that.  see below,  f16   1.6 f22  s1.3 i finally got the shot (from above image) but had to use f32.  why is this?...
