I just bought a canon 10-22mm and got the chance to take it out to the seaside today (getting it slightly wet while doing so) to try some long exposure shots with it (I bought a very cheap china made nd8 filter, so that helped some, especially when the water was splashing onto the lens!).
Here are my favourites, I've converted most of them to B&W because the weather wasn't great, and I didn't like the colour of the rocks too much.

Nice!

How do you give the water that effect?

I really like the color one, and the compositions on all of them.
I would keep an eye on your histograms though. On all the B/W shots much detail is lost with the under exposure.

Thanks for the feedback Michael, I'll do that with the histograms next time :)
I have to admit I do like B/W shots with lots of blacks and whites though :P I'm not a fan of the predominantly grey shots, so that might have had a part to play in the settings I used.

I am just a newbie here but I think that all of your shots are well done.
I especially like 2 and 4.


Canon 60D since Dec. 2011, Canon 28-135mm lens, Canon 70-300mm USM lens and Nifty Fifty 50mm 1.8 lens. Just got in a new lens: Tamron 18-270mm ; )

Nice, well done, I agree with Michael1116 some of the BW's seem to be a bit dark, especially #2 to me

They are all nice, but I think you should fix the water spray/dust bunnies in number3, 4 and 6. I agree that some of the areas are a bit too dark, but the plus side is that the images are strong and the composition is just brilliant.

The black level seems a tad too high although I do like the compositions.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to post :)
I've made a lighter version of a couple of them, are they any better?

About the water droplets, I know, I really should fix them but I got lazy... lol, and I'm not great with the clone tool.

Also, I just noticed that I managed to get one of the tripod's feed in the frame in shot 6 :oops:
