Manual Exposure for Flowing Water

When the sun has sunk below the horizon, there is still plenty of light to see and photograph by. In this situation, having a tripod and the ability to adjust your camera controls independently allows you to capture the twilight and the movement of the water at a slow shutter speed. Leaving my camera in program exposure mode for the shot below would have created a much brighter image, not the quiet feeling of dusk.
