Although I prefer the silky-smooth look of a timed photograph, I only had a point & shoot with me this day.

I settled for 8 separate images that I later overlayed with each other using a program called Registax. It gives the image a sort of foggy-soft look, which I like, though not as much as a timed exposure.

MiKxItUp: Thanks. It's an unusual technique that I'm planning to do a more significant writeup about in the near future. I used the same technique (but with 15 original images instead of 8) in this image.

Beatyfull stack! But maybe you wanna do a HDR?

Thanks, Niki Giada. I have done some mild HDR tonemapping on some of my other waterfall photos. HDR and stacking are different techniques and accomplish different things, and it was the stacking that I used on this photo.

Niki Giada, no, you don't get the same result. HDR is about dynamic range. In this case, Registax is about averaging subtle differences between many different photos of a moving subject to get a softer result.
