Arriving at Lonpan at dawn, finding this flowing water on the beach, I decided to compose with it. As the sun rose quickly I knew the golden light on the foreground water and the stones along the C-shaped flow of waves toward the land on the top-right corner were essential compositional elements. I made the exposures before waves hit the beach to make the stones visible.
The sunrise this morning provided me a warm experience when I had my breakfast home later.....

Very pleasing and well framed composition that benefits much from the slow exposure and small f-stop you selected. I like the scalloped edeg of the rivulet and the curve of the beach. Beautiful warm tones and exquisite clarity. Well worth getting up so early.

Une image douce aux couleurs pastel, presqu'en monochrome, une composition très agréable : tous les ingrédients d'une très bonne image. Merci.

A dreamy atmosphere because of the long shuttertime and beautiful colors.

Beautiful light. I like the compo. I think the photo could have been even better if there would have been some more water around the stones. Giving more zoom or getting closer could have been an option to get more focus on the stones and the water around. I feel they get kind of lost in space here. Alternatively you could take your POV closer to the shore and take the shot at a more diagonal angle.
I like the idea though and you see the long exposure time on the waves. Keep trying!
