Hello Leslie - You are getting to grips with your 'big stopper', this is a finely managed shot. The light is flat but you have such a super variety of texture and colour, especially in the FG that the light isn't critical. The colour shifts across the sea are so delicate and beautiful. Well presented and special. Have a lovely Devon day. Rosemary

Love those long exposures and the depth that colours take on. The algae are so rich!
Keep on clicking.

Good morning Les,
Such depth and colour captured here. The seaweed in the foreground is sharp and richly detailed and soft water movement afforded with the long exposure makes the sharp rocky features all the more sharp. The colour of the water is wonderful.Thanks for sharing

Great show from the seashore.I like such misty photographs of the sea water created with the use of neutral density filters. I am yet to use such filters and so I am excited about it.Very well composed with splendid colors and saturation. The lighting is also amazing as well as perfect POV too.TFS.

What can I say, beautiful photography! The extra slow shutter speed brings a magical quality to an already lovely scene. Superb colours and amazing depth.

your gallery is a great inspiration for me. I would love to take such beautiful photos in the future.
I can see how much creativity and how much work it takes to prepare such masterpieces.
Excellent composition with well selected foreground and three layers dividing the photo in equal parts. I like the extraordinary colors especially of water. Great effect of long exposure.
No words to give it a justice.

Another spooky almost prehistoric looking scene. I like so much that this place is relatively untouched. The slow shutter has worked a beauty, turning a probably already green sea into jade. I find the Big Stopper has this strange effect on colours, I can't really describe it, but perhaps you know what I'm talking about, there's a caste to the images? Another TEér has suggested that I block the viewfinder when doing the long exposures in order to get rid of the caste. What do you reckon?
Cheers, have a lovely evening

I think you're hooked on your "big stopper"! But for very good reason.
The effect of your strong ND filter and the resultant long exposure has given this picture an almost ethereal quality, the softness of the water mirroring the texture of the cloudy sky but with the sharply defined distant land separating the two parts.
An excellent composition which is held together by the rocky "stacks" appearing like little islands through the misty water. Lovely colours, perfect esxposure and excellent detail and sharpness.

A competent slow shutter shot despite the weather condition for such relaxed dreamy scene. Your effort has produced a beautifully balanced image by combining all the available elements. The wide feel and the soft colours tones are pleasing that turns this seascape into a place for tranquil thought. Fine effort, Congrats. TFS.

what a dramatic effect your big stopper filter has made on this scene, especially the sea, which has a very 'other-worldly' feel to it. wonderful colours. great composition with the rocks framing the image very well.

The effect of the 30secs is stunning Les.,the green water looks very special,everything seems to be on the move,even the skies above...
