Moving on some more around the west side of the island, racing against sunset to get as many photos in the mist as I can before the upcoming sunny days. I happened on a tidal pond, with the water still rushing out of it as the tide was falling. I took two nearly identical photos of this scene, one with a fast shutter, and one with about 1/3 second, experimenting with how the same shot would look with somewhat "flattened" water. This is a technique that I will use once in a while, but very cautiously. It seems to be something that shows up in a lot of photos with water, sometimes to great effect, and I think, perhaps, sometimes overused. I think that often, water needs to look like water, with motion stopped to show.

You all be the judge. I would be interested to hear if anyone else feels as I do.

Lovely composition with the mist creating an excellent capture. I agree with you V2 has a distracting affect for me. Well done Peter.

Looks like Fall. Interesting to see how foggy the summer can be.

You do need a tripod to take longer shutter speed, both are good in different ways

I guess V2 is quite artistic but rushing water needs to be seen so V1 wins.

V2 illustrates the actual flow Peter, nature we can't see with the eye.

I'm old school Peter, I prefer my water to look like water and not a milk shake. So its image one for me.
