You and i love the same scenery subjects...for sure! How do you take these kind of shots with 15" and 22mm? I see, in info, it's noon and should be bright from sun but it isn't at all...Do you use any lens filters?
With strong daylight, I usually use the smallest aperture possible (f/22... not 22mm ) and the longest exposure time I can do without overblown highlights. In this case it was 15 seconds. I took most of my waterscape stock while I was traveling up the coast of northern California and Oregon. I couldn't stay all day at each place waiting for the golden hours, so I had to do the best with the type of light I had
