Thanks David and Julian for your comment. David, this is a composite of two images: exposure was 2" for the water and 30" for the sky.

I love the subtle movement in the clouds and the textured water next to the solid deck. The positioning of the cleat makes a bold statement offset by the softness of the seascape.
