    Shot today for my Mom on Mother's Day. Rose shot would have been too cliché.

    I really need a polarizer.

    Really nice. Just curious, what would a polarizing filter have done to this shot?

    It would really help with the harsh sunlight that causes the blown out spots in the photo.

    The problem with circular polarisers is that (in this case), it would have taken away from the reflections on the water. What you need more here is a Neutral Density graduated filter. This would bring the exposure of the sky down, whilst leaving the exposure of the water and sand (which is spot on btw) as it stands.

    I've never used a neutral density filter, but that definitely sounds right for this shot. Thanks for the suggestion and comments. Aloha!

    Nice shot; you might perhaps have tried a longer exposure which would have given a milky, surreal quality to the water.
    A polariser is an essential piece of kit for landscapes and would have given more contrast between clouds and sky while darkening the sky.

    I really like the reflection that you are getting in the water.

    Thanks!

    I tried a few with longer exposures, but I was happier with the results of this one. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Kind of a dreamy effect. Thanks!
    Thanks!
