    I like the starkness of the scene which appears, to me, to be representing some kind of aftermath; the calm after the storm.

    This is a very captivating image.
    For me it would be perfect if a good portion of the white space on the bottom of the image were removed in crop; however that is just my personal taste.

    I think it's well balanced as it is.

    Nice photo.

    I enjoy your work kulten. It is so calming and serene. Some day I'm going to try this method of photography because it always gets my attention. Thanks for sharing your lovely work with us. ~~Peg

    Taking photographs with ND filters is pretty easy and fun as well . So good luck!

    I have a ND4 & ND8. Would they be in the right realm to try this type of work? And one other question. Do you de-saturate post photo or shoot in BW? Thanks. ~~Peg

    Even without filter you can achieve milky water if weather conditions allowed. For example this capture: http://www.marcinbera.com/blog/wp-co...0/DSC0989d.jpg I took using just a tripod, remote control and no filters at all. It was 30sec at f8, ISO 100 and moonlight in the background. So everything up to light and your abilities.

    You have ND4 and ND8 so for example I used the same filter, another words ND4 and the result you can watch here: http://marcinbera.com/blog/wp-conten...10/img189c.jpg. Addionaly I have to mention this capture I took with film vintage camera what means everything is possible. Just need some practice and patience. Do not give up.

    I always take my shots using RAW format (and aRGB range color!). I do post processing, e.g. desaturating in Photoshop .

    Hopely that was helpful.
