Photo: Painting the Gulf With Long Exposures

Last week I used my Nikon 55-300mm lens with a polarizer filter at the beach during sunset. Since the lens has a rather impressive built in stabilizer I thought I would try long exposures to capture images of the Gulf waves and wake to achieve the smoothing out of the motion. I have to say, I am very happy with the way some of them came out – it was so hard to choose for this post! The soft colors of the cloudy sunset matched nicely with the smooth motion. I like how it creates the look of a painting in some of them. Next time, I think I will try a neutral density filter to see how the results differ.
