OK, it's eye candy, I admit it. My name is Ben, and I love seascapes, and sometimes color. :)

Used a 10 stop ND filter. I'm a sucker for blur, of any sort, so I'm looking forward to using this filter more often. It really smeared the sky in an interesting way.

I just might be carbon candy neutral with two recent pinholes. ;)

Cheers, and thanks for the votes and comments.

It appears I'm really slow these days. Must check to see if I'm wearing a 10-stop ND filter somewhere...

Congrats on your ribbon Ben. And for the courage to declare your interest in things other than "traditional" blur, LOL!

Well, there's that. And the Ohio River makes an awful seascape.

Lovely work mate. Not too flashy and yet calming and dramatic at the same time if that's possible. Well done on your ribbon...nature prevails, 1, 2 and 3!

The blurry clouds do seem to be zipping towards you. Very nice effect. Carboncandy-neutral? Depends on whether or not you had a chocolate bar whist peddaling from home to the seaside.
