    Thanks Cecily. There'll be more coming shortly (lots of photos to go through).
  • flash of light said:
    Great! looking forward to the rest too. What sort of filter did you use?
  • David de Groot said:
    On this one, none. It was late enough that f/20 was enough in itself. My choice of filters is at the moment, none and polarizer, but the 50mm lens doesn't focus correctly with the polarizer on (very annoying), whereas the 10-20mm polarizer works a treat (and eats at least 2 stops, maybe 3 of light).

    Love the beach, and this just adds an element that's very alien to me...

    Thanks :) I'd seen this style of thing done before and had to give it a go myself.

    Thanks :)

    Glad you like it. The others will come soon, although I might mix up the subject matter a bit so as to not bore people.

    It's something fun to do as the sun sets on the beach ;-)

    I'm in catch-up mode too Helen. :)

    Thanks for the heads-up. :)

    You will have to get up early now.

    Great shot.
  • Gabinetu said:
    fantastic shot, you are invited to join on
  • David de Groot said:
    bachamp - That's a possibility I guess, although now that I'm back home, getting up early enough to get to the beach would be quite early indeed (3 hours before sunrise is my guess).

    Excellent effect, it worked out very well. Very nice subtle tones in the sky for that length of exposure. Great silky look.

    Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

    Long exposures are one of my favourite forms of photography.
  • looby88 said:
    I think I may even prefer the other one on redbubble, decisions ,decisions !! They both have that certain something though : )
  • David de Groot said:
    I know I prefer the other one, personally, and will probably post it over here at some stage too. :)
