...another from my afternoon by the river with the 10x big stopper. The green of the sea shines through with the highlights in this one, silvery glints on the water as the tide goes out.
It's a frustrating subject this, you see the rays of sunlight marching across the water but the exposure blurs the time frame. The result is often quite different to your expectation.

Relaxing view Dougie, that calm "karma " of the sea.

I especially like how you captured the light on the water - that silvery shine makes it for me today.
It looks so quiet and calm.

With or without the rays, you have captured a beautiful shot Dougie. I too like the silvery shine of the water, but it is the rocks that hold my attention. Want to go raking in them to see what I find - just like a kid WinkGrin. Moira

Another winner mate!



Well worth viewing large for the details in the foreground and light on the sea.
Well worked Dougie

Silver and slate, gorgeous tones in the water and distant land.


Evokes utter tranquillity. That little bay is the perfect anchor for the composition.

I was drawn by the vast emptiness of that smooth sky, atop the equally empty expanse of sea, and my first thought was that it needed something, but after studying it a bit more, I have changed my mind and see that it wirks very well as it stands. It does not need the addition of a boat of birds.



Quite an eerie sort of lighting here, Dougie.......the effect no doubt of the big stopper.


Malc there were two boats in the image but the 30 second exposure makes them vanish. They would need to be at anchor.

This is quite an unusual image for you Dougie and a little bit reminiscent of Codiac's work. I really like the simplicity of the image and the light that you have managed to capture - it all creates a lovely mood of calm.



At least the 10stopper gave plenty of time for the seagull to vanish. Another beauty Dougie.


I'm not really in the big stopper supporters' camp but this is a v. well-composed and taken image, Dougie as we've come to expect. In my view the 10x works on some scenes well increasing drama. This is evident in pictures with clouds blurring outwards to the frame corners and in the rich tones the long exposure can deliver. On the other hand it can make an otherwise interesting sky nondescript and convert colours to an almost monotone uniformity. It's a Marmite thing I reckon Smile

Unlike my learned Welsh colleague I am a big fan of the 10 stopper...one of the things that I think helps is the light can be squeezed out of an almost dull day (ok, lets say grey overcast, moody one..lol) The light on the sea work well here and I love the tones. From memory I seem to recall you have done a straight shot from here ye?


dont understand the 10x stopper but love the picture

The long exposure creates nice movement in the sky Dougie, and superb view.

Beautiful tones in the sky and water Dougie.
