    Camera: Sony DSLR-A700
    Exposure: 30"
    Aperture: f/22.0
    Focal Length: 18 mm
    ISO Speed: 100

    The other night was my first time trying to get that erie long exposure+moving tide shot. This one turned out the best, as most of them the sky was overexposed compared to the rocks. I guess I need to go out on a clear night later than ~30 minutes after the sunset? C&C welcome!

    I like it, specialy due to its dreamy touch.

    Very good work for a first time try.

    very nice
    it's very soft and reflective
    looks like the water is almost misty
    love the almost gradient colours and texture in the bottom right corner.
    a very elegant feel! nice work :)

    Very good shot!

    You may want to try a grduated nueutral density filter to help prevent blowing out the sky.

    Very pretty :) It is a tad underexposed, but it adds to the mood of the picture.

    Thanks for all of the input everyone

    And thank you for this, as the sky was blown out in the majority of the shots.
