That 30 secs thru the NDs has allowed the sky and water to fully work their wonders here and I love that first suggestion of the day’s color you have creeping in from the east.

i really like this long exposure look. i am wondering about the grains. does it have anything to do with the quality of the film that you were using?

Micki!!! That is so wonderful. So placid. So peaceful. So .... I don't know! Beautiful cloud movement and everything. I love it!

I particularly like the diagonal from lower left and the curve along that line. You know how I like the curves!

Wow, Micki! The clouds in this shot really look more like a painting than anything. Also, I love the apparent stillness of the water. The texture is perfect. Great colors as well!

Beautiful shot - There are many different elements I like about this photograph. The colors are beautiful. the soft time-swept clouds are perfect. This is my favorite thus far, but then I am partial to landscapes. - R.
