Another one from Monday night at Whitsand bay in Cornwall. I used a polariser and an ND grad to get a 60 second exposure.

One of my favourites this, so I hope it goes down well with you folks!

Like the details and tones in this Paul - the long exposure has worked its magic on the water. First class.

This is outstanding, Paul. I can see why it's one of your favourites. The wide angle format complements the striking composition, with the dramatic rock feature pointing the eye towards that long exposured sky. Fabulous.

Very nice indeed, Paul.
It has a wonderful serenity, and the choice of 60 seconds really works well.
Did you use the polariser just for the couple of stops longer, or for the colour as well?
Cheers,
Bill
