    It's been a while since I've been around, boy has this place been growing. it's nice to see more new faces around.
    well anyway , I went for a sunrise and wound up with a cloudy morning, So I put on the 10 stop and B&W it is. It's 2 minutes 15 seconds long, F11 and iso 100. I also used a 3 stop grad to even it out a bit! All C&C welcomed and appreciated.

    Hey Joe, yeah we keep having some nice slow growth with some really great people joining our community. :)

    This is really great! Good idea to go with the longer exposure and the choice of B&W is perfect!

    And try not to be absent this long again. :) your photography is alway inspiring, and you have a totally different playground that you photograph in so it’s always great to see your part of the world.

    I like the long exposure for this pier. The smooth water behind the pier helps isolate it in the scene. Nice one.

    Thanks so much Jim, your always such a positive person for me here!!! I'll do my best, at times it's a chore to keep up with the internet so I have to walk away and clear my head.

    Here is a normal exposure of the same dock. As much as I love the drama in the sky it creats to much clutter for me.

    I like the extra drama in the clouds in this new image but the isolation of the old pier in that first one tugs at me just a bit more. This last image does have a slightly different point of view than the first which was more centered on the length of the pier so it's not quite a one to one comparison. Both are nice shots.

    An interesting comparison you have added Joe. I have to say with Ben, I kind of like that kind of clutter... :)

    But I can also see the benefit of the long shutter speed and how it helped to simplify the shot and the visual interest for the eye.

    I also kind of like that off center composition with the dock in #2. I think that's a bit stronger, mainly because it helps give depth to the dock.

    Nice work on both. Thanks for posting two versions, good comparison and fodder for discussion. Like Ben & Jim I'm partial to the dramatic clouds and the composition of the second.
