For me to get a better understanding I would like to question the process for clarification. The long shutter speed would have smoothed out the water naturally along with the clouds. The dark ND filter used was so the sunrise wouldn't be blown out with over exposure because of the long shutter speed? I know I have had issues with long shutter speeds and one area of the photo would be overexposed and other areas underexposed. If that is the case, then maybe I need a dark variable neutral density filter.

Thank you Dave,glad you liked it. This pier is a little tricky to work with but I will try some with it more de-centered next time I do this experiment. Yes, the long shutter (about 30-40 seconds if I remember correctly) was to get the water flattened out, but looking right into the sunrise, I'd have blown the sky and the water too without the ND filter. The filter is a 10 stop one, something I haven't had long and haven't learned well, so there's lots of experimenting when I work with it.

I have to confess to sharing this sunrise with a good friend and know what the mysterious blob is, it's a flock of Starlings. There were several of them coming at us in the early hours of the morning and if you look at the image at 500% or more you can start to see them coming into view. It was magnificent to see that many at once but I wished I had seen them dance across the sky in their unique way. Another time perhaps! S-

I had forgot about the starlings!

(BTW. I'd love to see your version of this scene - when you get around to it, I hope you'll add it)
