My attempt at doing some pictures at the ocean. This is under the pier and I was using a ND filter. Just want a little feedback of what you might think.

Very well done. You are on to something here but I'm not sure what it is.

I agree with the above comment that you have a photo waiting to come out, have uploaded a mod (not a very good one just messing around) but I feel you need to crop it somewhere within the bottom 2/3 thirds of the shot.
Mike.

Thirty seconds - this is what the camera can see and the human eye cannot. Things that work for me - the mystery of the hazy water, the organic feel of the posts, and the divide between the above-water area and the area that is obviously below the water level a lot of the time. Also the asymmetry, it makes the eye explore the uprights.
The composition is top-heavy though - much as I like portrait format I don't think it was a good idea here. I'm with Mike on the need for a crop. His Mod is pretty well what I would do.
I like the way you are exploring off-beat subjects, not just seeing the obvious.
