[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Man 'O War Bay, the same spot as some recent shots i posted from when the UK experienced some very stormy weather. It's the next inlet just west of the more famous Lulworth Cove.
I used two Cokin ND grad filters (N2 & N8), plus a circular polariser here to help with exposure.
First time i've really tried any long exposure shots, so your comments very welcome!

Hi Paul,
You did great on the shutter speed. I even looks like when you waited a few more seconds, you would have gotton wet feet.
Good work on the exposure and composition. I think its time for you to buy that DSRL, since it will help you on the DOF and with a good wide lens on even more spectacular shots.

Hi Paul

Nice light here. I have just purchased some ND grad filters so great to see you put some into use. Horia recommended them to me after the fog pictures I tried. Nice sense of energy with the water crashing between the two rocks
