With the KP and DA*11-18mm F2.8 again, handheld and after a slow shutter for these so mainly high f stop - f22. Is defraction really obvious/serious a problem?, hmm. Down to 1/15th sec for the B & White one.
Enjoy (hopefully )

For me, defraction isnt much of an issue, but why not invest in some good quality ND filters ?

Buy the filter to suit your largest diameter lens and then use step down rings for the rest

All my filters are 86mm dia with step down rings to 77mm / 72mm and 68mm, reduces the outlay considerably.

If you used ND filters on these you'd end up with a sea full of condensed milk.

Thankfully these are not very slow, so they still show the action and power of the waves. I'm enjoying these images.

Exactly what I had thought at the time, I have been to this location before with ND filters, but knew with a handheld slow shutter speed would still give a look I wanted or there abouts. At 1/45 or 1/30 and was pleased with the good results from 1/15th second !
I do have step down rings for my polarizer, and for the 150mm Filter system, ND's etc.
Thank you all for the comments.

Mali Davies put out his latest vlog on youtube yesterday which was all about wave and sky watching. Both interesting, informative and inspirational.

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

I like the complex wave motion in the first. The second looks impossible!
