Re: Long exposure at the beach

Worked out well. Not as stark as some of your shots and makes a nice alternative.

Again, the muted colours in the sky work well.

Re: Long exposure at the beach

3 minutes in a long exposure, must have been pretty dark to get your result.

Works really well IMHO, milky sea looks really good.

Well shot, see no evidence of noise either.........

There was a lot of noise in the image and would show if shown larger
I took a handheld shot just before this in the other direction ISO 400 f6.3 1/4 sec so not that bright.
