Pringle Bay, Western Cape, South Africa.

The following tutorial is the basis for this entry: //www.nd-magazine.com/articles/art2.php

Taken at the 11mm end of the lens. A Hoya ND400 filter was used to get the long exposure (first entry with the filter, I collected it from the post office the morning that I took the photo).

RAW conversion in Lightroom. Noise reduction, resize, sharpen and save for web.

I already picked the blue, but now I am having second thoughts. ...so this must be red. ;-) Could be on top though - clearly an amazing image and one that will appeal to the masses.
