Some beach long exposures

Here's a few pics from today at Aberdeen harbour entrance.
All with GH3 and 12-35 using 5 or 10 stop ND's.
RAW processed with LR5.

Comments welcome.

Re: Some beach long exposures

For the first 4 I do not see what a long exposure is adding.

5 is good
6 is Ok
7 is very good
I like 8 too

Thanks for your comments

The long exposure adds a subtle silkiness to the sea that creates a more atmospheric shot.

Without a long exposure the sea takes on a harsher appearance as in this shot below.

Re: Some beach long exposures

Re: Some beach long exposures

The long exposure has worked best in #1 (IMHO) but I might be inclined to crop 10% off the bottom. However the lights of Aberdeen make #8 my favourite.

Re: Some beach long exposures

A very nice set Paul and the slow shutter speed as worked well (I'm not a fan of choppy water either ), the first and the last are my favourites.

As for comments not much to say as they are well done, if I had to comment it would be just to say I would have processed them a just little bit differently, especially no1, but that's me.

Hi Paul, not that much different just a bit more dynamic contrast and detail in the rocks and the lighthouse. Just a matter of taste really, and probably somewhere between the two would be ideal.

The best I could do with a a small low res jpeg. Ideally I would have masked out the sea to stop the adjustments effecting it but no time.
