    So I picked up a Lee Filters Big Stopper and went down to the power plant this morning and did some experimenting. I think I did ok for my first try. This was a 8 minute exposure at f9 with my sigma 10-20mm on a canon 80d. Any friendly advice is welcome.

    I actually really like the look of this photo! Foreground with the rocks looks really great. The background subject matter isn't exactly the most interesting, but for a test shot with the new filter I'd say this is a win!

    I've just started playing with long exposure landscapes myself.. my favorite part is the effect it has on clouds/sunsets.. try it sometime!

    The water and rocks looks like mist. Kinda dreamy.

    Thank you. Yes the background has a windmill but the blades disappear because it's a long exposure. That's why we practice!!

    Nice. I'd like to try this at the ocean sometime - maybe Santa will bring me some darker NDs.

    Do you have a shot of the same scene in a 'normal' image? (NOT long exposure?)
    I would love to see the difference.

    Foreground is excellent but loses some interest fsrther back. Perqhaps try a warmer color for the sky?
