I only flicked through, but in the 'bracketing issues' I would think a big one would be movement, especially for seascapes. I rarely use filters and almost always bracket and can get away with it even for moving trees and the like, with modern software. HOWEVER, I don't shoot many seascapes, but when I do (or have done) I usually will use a filter if possible. Moving waves and a generally flat horizon (even if the wave crests are above the horizon) usually make it a better option, or at the very least one worth considering even for die-hard brackers like myself.

OTOH I guess from your comments you bracket more than use filters. So is there a particular technique for bracketing seascapes? Might be worth mentioning how you cope with movement.

I understand the issue. Typically, water is not overexposed. It's just the sky. So I take the water and the waves from a single shot, then the sky from another one. More often than not, the rocks (or whatever else I have there) have no details lost in shadows, so I'd just brighten them a bit. However, sometimes I need a third brighter exposure for the rocks.

Right, I get you. Actually I have done the same thing now you mention it, but even without bracketing - get the sky or even foreground and then take several shots for the waves and use the one I like best - you can also use this ti vary shutter speed for the water vs clouds for instance.

Typically, I use 1 shot for the sky and 1 shot for everything else. If the contrast is too strong, I do 3 shots: 1 for the sky, 1 for the water and one for the rocks and such. The idea is to get all of the water within one single frame. Otherwise, we are in trouble :)
