So we all got up at 5 am, we all trooped off like dutiful little landscaping sheep to see the sunrise at Llanddwyn Islans and... we all failed to see the bl**dy sun rise!

Still, gave me a chance to have a play with my 10 stop filter. Sorry, now that I discovered quadtone/tritone/duotones, you're also going to be getting a lot of b&w variations too for a while Wink

This has a very attractive tonal quality. the water and sky complement the greens/browns/yellows on the land and shore. just a thought on the use of the ten stop filter, (ok this is kind of cliched but...) I might have been tempted to get a bit closer to the waters edge and try for stronger impression water movement over the pebble beach, which is nice and sharp in the image. lovely work. I must get one of these filters.

Katie, trust me. Stick with us grandads. It's much more fun!

Thanks guys. Stuart, the water started much closer, but after 2 15 minute exposures the tide had gone out somewhat! (this was the second one)

It’s a shame the weather was against you Katy, at least you got a bit of an insight into what the nonseascapeographers were up to. Wink The 10 stopper looks interesting.

HI, I like both, but I prefer the mono. That said I'd crop a lot of the beach leaving a square image. I think that improves things.

Hope you're not too sicky bad. Smile

I like the treatment in V1, the low colours gives the image a feeling of isolation
