Waterfall
Lens: Pentax D FA 100mm Macro WR Camera: Pentax K1 Mark II Photo Location: Surrey ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1s Aperture: F22 

The waterfall at Virginia Waters, Surrey. Photo is an additive composite mode shot comprising (I think) 8 shots to simulate an ND filter's effect on the water. I'm not sure about the number of exposures because I was terminating the run when the image was exposed properly.

Nice looking waterfall.
I like the composition and also the somewhat cool and catalogue like processing.
But if I am allowed beeing picky, for such a stylish image I find the small branches at the bottom a little distracting (mainly the single one on the left 1/3 in the bottom)

I've never heard of composite mode, sounds like an interesting way to get smoothed water like this. Nicely done!

How much sun was there when you took this?

Brightly overcast, no direct sun. I use exposure compensation to set each image to underexposed, as the composite mode gets brighter with each exposure.

I like the composition. The mini cascades within the big rocks in front grabs my attention.

This is exquisite. I really like the feel. I've heard of but not played with additive composite mode. Now I really want to try it!

I've never played around with that method before. Usually when I am going for such an effect I will stack and average exposures but that can introduce motion blur where one doesn't want it. I think the next time I go out for a waterfall shot I may have to try this method.

Interval composite is very handy, nice shot! I like how there's a green spot of color in an otherwise monochrome image. Only a tiny suggestion to (maybe) pp out the stick on the right.
