Thanks for all the votes and comments everyone.

This is a 3 shot pano that was merged in PS. I also shot a set of HDRs at a normal shutter speed but when trying to stitch those, the motion of the water just wouldn't line up properly. The water in the long exposures were much easier to blend together.

The waves were kind of high this day and while doing a 2nd set of long exposures, I (and the camera gear) got entirely drenched so I cut the shoot short. :\

Thanks again and Happy New Year everyone!

Great image, Mark. I don't know if this is a stitch, but I got wrapped up in the stitch route as it was being talked about so much, and tried a similar scene but couldn't get the long-exposure water to line up at all, and it was quite a mess. Very well done here. For one shot as well.

Congratulations on the Blue. Even there were other extremely good shots in this challenge, this was the best of the best.

Really like the subdued colors and tones on this, Mark. So easy to over saturate these kind of shots.

Gotta love that foggy effect from the water movement against the stones. Great colors in the sky, and great sharpness edge to edge.

Beautiful. Top 3.

I enjoy the way the misty looking waves gradually come up on the rocks, and the shine on the ones not quite in the water. Great clouds, too - they are the sky's response to the beautiful details below.

How can someone find these places. This is my favorite for the blue and way better than Lik. My only 10 in this challenge.
