It is a very nice image, but I'm not sure that this particular shot needed the long exposure? Credit is due though for producing a fine shot with very warm and rich tones.

Thanks for the comment David much appreciated. Personally i think the smoothing of the sea is a bonus.

Yeh - like that mal. What's that object on the horizon just to the right of the Jetty - can't be a sail boat or it would have 'blurred'.

Ahh - it just seemed to have a slight tilt (lens effect I guess), and the black bit beneath could have been a hull. Nice part of the world.

Nice shot Mal. I do agree with David though.

Lovely shot. I think the long shutter effect contributes to the image, by simplifying the sea. There's a little red/green fringing towards the edges of the shot.

Thanks for the comments chaps i have a similar shot at normal exposure and i think the calmer water adds to the picture.

Just to be clear about what I meant, I do like the image very much and I think you are right about the smooth sea, but this could have been achieved with a 10 second exposure or less, what I was meaning is that it didn't need 258 seconds. The light must have been quite dim if it needed 258, even taking into account the 10 stop filter, so I would guess that a long exposure was possible without the filter, or with just a polariser for example?
