[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Been playing around with a n ND Filter to help with the long exposures - the tide was coming in but a 30 second exposure rendered it calm. I was hoping for a bit more surf to give a more misty effect but plenty of time to practice :)

Cropped and saturated to bring the colours in the sky out original in workshop.

Hope you like it

I looked at the WS, it's very interesting to see how it was before adding the filter.
The POV gives a great Dof, the perspective is excellent and the accompanying the glance at the skyline nicely.
I Like watching away.
Excellent entry to the theme.

Hi Bri,nice smoothness to the water,& a good fit to this weeks Theme,what strength of ND filter did you use? I would like to try some day light long exposures & I think I will need an 8 or 10.As you say,it takes a wee bit of practice to get it the way one's mind visualizes the end result:-)

I like the effect of the long exposure on the water, it does look very calm. Love the colors of the sky and the water. Very well done, tfs.

I like the long-exposure pictures you usually take and this one is no exception, Brian!
Great details and well caught mood in this location.
The light and exposure are just fantastic.
Well caught charm and contrasts in the scene!

A nice entry to Friday's theme!

Kind regards,

Hi Brian, I love the soft colour in this. Looks like that wall gets pretty wet when the tides in. Fiona

Not only nice play with the light, but I also admire the play with distances that give this picture it's originality!

Hi Brian,
An interesting POV to capture this moody presentation. Beautiful red cast all over and nice effect of the tide coming in. The panoramic frame fits and the softness you created is dramatizing your presentation.
Well done,

Francis Xavier
