    Now that makes me want to race off to the coast and find some rocks

    What intrigues me is the great balance you have achieved with the back ground and foreground lighting levels, what sort of shutter speed did you use, cant have been very slow or the water would be less defined yet you have great exposure on the sky, or is it all in the PP?

    Give an Artist a box of different sized colour blocks and he will create an art work; give me the same box and I will sort it by colour and then size :)

    I used a 3 stop hard ND filter to balance the foreground and sky. Theres some pp work on it but not a lot.

    Great pic, Rob. Must be great when the clouds co-operate.

    I guess you have to rinse the salt off you tripod afterwards too?

    I'm really loving these wave surge , water on the move shots you've been posting here Rob. They totally rock ! ... Just to show my ignorance did have a quick Google but figured it would be quicker to ask you.When you say GND filter is that the same as a polarising filter or is it a different type filter again .

    Cheers!

    Nope a graduated neutral density filter isnt a polariser.

    Its a rectangular filter top half dark bottom half clear. The change between the dark/clear bit is either hard (over 5mm or so or soft over 30-40 mm or so)

    Basically balances the light levels of the sky and the foreground

    Great photos as usual!

    Are these using your Hi-Tech 85mm GNDs or have you upgraded to 100mm yet? I've been really lazy and still haven't gotten round to getting some. Would be good to know whether 85mm would be alright...

    I often find in pictures where a hard GND filter has been used you can tell, because they blocks out any landscape feature that protrudes above the horizon, as it has done with the rocks in the central mid-ground

    aye, but to be fair those rocks wouldnt have any detail without it. The tops are blacker than a black thing at night.

    Beautiful shots, would be nice to see a panoramic of the same area! In to panoramic seascapes at the moment, look so good when enlarged!
