It was a cloudy day - I was actually surprised it didn't rain.
Lovely place, and briefly, some sun shone through the clouds. I hope the focus looks soft enough.

Fortunately, the girl was taking a photo with her phone, so the two figures there didn't move during the 2 second exposure.

I experimented with gauze netting, a plastic lid and a plastic bag - I think this is one of the plastic bag shots. I had my ND2 and polarising filters on the lens.

A lovely photo, but I find the people on the left distracting.

a lovely scene that lends itself well to soft focus, you probably could have made this a bit softer to enhance the mood without losing the integrity of the image

Probably should have waited until the fat tourist left the picture!!!

A nice peaceful scene, good movement in the water, I would like to have seen a little more softness and the person on the Left handside is a little distracting but overall a nice image :o)
