Hasn't this been on before? Sure I voted 5 for it last year.

Similar shot but with a different foreground.... thinking prefer this latest one though compared to the one last year.

Magnificent. What kind of shutter speed was used to get the "movement blurring"?

Is this HDR, as I imagine it should be quite difficult to get the exposure correct for all elements within this photo?
Sean Kelly - 10/May/11
Hi Sean. No HDR. I used Two ND Grads (Hard Edge). One lined up with the water (.9 three stop) and the second just above the water (.6 two stop), about level with split rock. Some careful dodging around split rock to make sure there was no line from the grad. This kept the sky under control leaving a nicely exposed water and sand line. I used a small amount of dodging around the back of the seaweed to balance it with the front which was nicely lit.

Does that mean, 'scuse my ignorance, there is more than one exposure?
David Dear - 10/May/11
No, just two filters, stacked in front of the lens; at different angles and heights.
Jon Read - 10/May/11
Hi Dave...it's one exposure exactly as Jon described it. I like to get the shots right (or as close as) inside the camera as it saves having to spend to much time behind a pc. It also means you see the results straight away and you can change them by taking another shot if your not happy.
