Long exposure of 15 seconds @ F/14.

This is a variant of my last but one upload - they were taken 2 minutes apart, the difference being exposure time and aperture.

Unsure which one I prefer - though they were shot from the same location at the same time I think they each convey quite different moods.

A lovely shot, I like the "misty" effect the long exposure has had on the water.

Nice to be able to play and produce different effects with the different exposure times. I like the water moving over the rocks in the previous, but the 'misty' effect here is pleasing too. I usually try to move around lots too, to get very low, and sometimes high angles to produce different compositions and see which looks best. Often it's the first and most obvious, but sometimes an unexpected composition works really well.

Thanks for your comments, Leigh!
Good advice... on this occassion there was plenty of moving around (partly due to the incoming tide) and this was the last of a dozen or so positions from that evening.
Still need lots more practice though - learning to keep an eye on settings, spotting when ND filter needs to be swapped, change ISO, etc. And not worrying about getting wet feet!
Cheers -- Steve.

This is good mate, theres no stoppin ya now, lol
I am a fan of water over things, but I think in this instance I preffer this one,
I dont think it could be better, maybe step left and lose a tad of the outcrop of land but, the land being in dosnt make this a bad shot.
Well done Steve, I have added the colour version to mine as you asked.

this one is so calming. and a very good shot. the first you mentioned is my choice as it seems a bit more dramatic. both great shots.

Interesting to compare this shot with the previous one. Love the way the sea has been captured here with the long exposure. Very nice work, Steve.
