I wish I had the ND10 too. Stacking several polarizers isn't the way to go so I've learned.

that park is a hidden gem. Spent many days there while in college in SLO. It was before I had a camera though, I need to go back!

Wonderful capture. Very well done. I wish I had a ND10 too. I just can't seem to fork over 180 bucks for a filter for one lens.

Great light and contrasts here. I'm not really a fan of the smooth long exposure water thing in general, but I love the rest of the scene and the processing that you've done.
