Soft beach

A couple of months ago I bought a ND grad and ND8 Cokin-type filters. I was always fond of those cotton like smooth water effects and other long daylight exposures – thought I could try this myself. Yesterday I finally got around to going to the beach (Gdynia Orłowo area, Poland) with my tripod, filters and stuff and to experiment a little. Weather was pretty dull and my skills and experience little (so far), so most of the photos turned out to be something far from what I have imagined. But, a couple went suprisingly ok. Especially when for 5 minutes, the light changed a little. Here’s the effect. What do you think?
p.s. I was too lazy to remove all the spots – it drizzled a little…

  1. Very nice use of filters here to really make the gorgeous light shine smoothly on this fine landscape.

    Lovely shot. Personally, I prefer the nice muted colours of this to the black and white version. Beautiful.
