No problem. I'll probably do another one with my buddy but this time, we're going to use the same lens as well.
We had bantered back and forth here and there about the differences. We realize that realistically, there isn't THAT much difference between the two outcomes depending on your settings.

As I said, this was interesting... So, which image is which?...
Image 1 is ND.
Image 2 is stacked.
I find the perspectives of peoples thoughts on the images interesting. 2 different techniques aiming to create the same thing (style of image) and there isn't a major definitive difference that would hands down show which was which. Some did get the images correct though. But overall it's pretty split. Was an interesting spur of the moment experiment.
Thanks all who chimed in with their thoughts and opinions!

I find it interesting to see how people view the two images and their thoughts on which is which... I'll reveal which is which later on. Some good input though so far!

In all honesty, when we got there, we realized that we've never actually seen anyone do this with Niagara Falls. Smaller waterfalls yes, but not Niagara, so we decided to give it a shot and see what happens. The one thing was that we couldn't over do it because of the mist from the falls.
That's really the only reason. Also, I guess when you're trying to re-create the motion of something, being able to have the micro contrast details between the waterlines and then the soft curtain mists may add to that. You can't do that with a fast shutter. But at the same time, I know what you're saying. I've done both, but as I said, we just wanted to try something different for this scene.

Hi all,

So my good buddy and I went out to Niagara Falls over the weekend and took some shots of the falls.
He used a 6 stop ND filter and a 3 stop soft grad ND filter.
I stacked 30 images with an interval of 3 seconds between shots with no filters.

Since we used different techniques to achieve the same type of image, it made us wonder.
So! We're curious if you can tell which is which, which one you prefer and why?
Obviously the editing was left to ourselves.
In case you're wondering about the gear used...

Me: K-3, Sigma 17-70 F/2.8-4 DC Macro HSM
My buddy: K-3 II, Sigma Art 18-35 F/1.8
