I remember a gentleman by the name of KeithH saying on here one time that the wunner of a particular landscape contest should be the one with the longest exposure.

Quote: I've seen the technique used for water, and looks really effective here for the sky as well - I'm guessing many if not all of the best landscape shots use the long shutter speed. The reason I ask about the comparison is to see how much different it is, and how it transforms an image from ordinary to extraordinary.

Here you go - this is the test shot - 1/6Sec @ f/22

Quote: Is this kind of thing only achievable through the use of ND filters?

Yes, but you would need quite low light, this was taken 45 mins before sunrise and it was so dark that to the naked eye you could hardlysee the pier.
15 Seconds @ f/5

Chris, thank you so much for posting that for me - I am completely sold.
The difference is remarkable and seeing them side by side it really does sink in what can be achieved.

Right, I'm off to price up some filters !!!
