In addition to a slower shutter speed, I went into Viveza and lowered the Contrast and the Structure of the water.

Florence from Paris, France

A smoothy ocean surrounded by a misty feel, that's nice Jack, quite peaceful and really aethetic in a sense. Love the clouds, as a scarf around a neck, on the mountains.

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

A wonderful misty feel to the shot Jack! ;-)

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

I know this may look and sound like a daft question, but did you focus with the ND filter in place?

6 Apr 2011 1:48pm

@Curly: It is a screw on filter ( ), and yes, it was screwed on.

Don from Spokane, United States

It did produce a very atmospheric looking shot of what appears to be ocean haze. I like it a lot!

I don't know, I kinda like the look of this water and it seems to be almost "at one" with the mist..this is pretty darn cool Jack!

Lovely color tones and composition !!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

I think I like this a bit more than yesterday's. It takes on more of a monochromatic view with very smooth waters with that shutter speed.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

I think I like yesterday's better. So, what is the secret? That is, what would you have done differently?

@Steve Rice: 30 sec. exposure
