Thanks! I feel the white balance is a bit off, but I'm still very much a novice with regard to post processing. Lightroom seems miles easier than Photoshop, though.

It may be because you very often see long(er) exposure shots with moving water, but I think I might either prefer them with frozen-in-movement water or much more silky (like in Szeph el raton's post above) - I guess that would mean cranking the ND filters...

I've never really tried the silky water shot before, so to ask what I was planning is maybe giving me too much credit smile.gif. I'm pretty happy with how things turned out, but would have preferred a bit more silkiness. Options were limited as I did not have a ND filter, and was using a gorillapod 800 (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/825599-REG/Joby_GP20_01AM_GORILLAPOD_MICRO_800_GRAY.html). It's worked great with Micro 4/3 primes (and even somewhat with the Panasonic 7-14mm) on my E-M5, but is not up to the task of balancing the 12-40/2.8 lens. As a result, I had to supplement either by handholding, or using the lens cap effectively as a 4th tripod leg.
