Having seen some stunning examples of long exposure photography this year, I was determined to give it a go. Most people appear to use ND10 (10 stop Neutral Density) filters to lower the light levels and enable long exposures, I had too much to get together before my break and an ND was low on the priority list.
In order to get the above image I set the ISO to 100, stopped down to f22 and used a polarising filter to shave off a further 1ev, I still had to wait until dusk in order to achieve a 13 sec exposure. I found this was long enough to blur the waves and give an ethereal, misty feel to the shot.
Little post processing was needed, I made minor adjustments to local saturation in the sky and tones on the rocks but the image needed little else.
