I'm curious, is there anyother reason, other than personnel preference, that it seems most shots that have flowing water in it are the soft blur (longer exposure, often using ND filters) vrs the less 'used', sharp definition of 'drops & splash'.(Shorter exposure). With the soft blur, it seems that most of the focus of the shots are on the water, and not the nature and surroundings. I happen to like the shorter exposure, showing the flow of the water, to me, in its more natural state. Captured and caught in the twinkling of the moment. Of course, on fast moving water you get sections of it, sharp, and other area's where it is running faster, tending to blur. Yet, to me, you do not tend to focus on just that. For those who like the soft blur, can you explain why?
