One thing I've been wanting to do more of is really long exposures, particularly of water. I took the camera, tripod and dog up to Harlaw reservoir at the weekend, and took a few pics of the sunset. Despite stacking two ND8 filters and a graduated ND filter, and winding the F stop as high as it would go, I still couldn't get above 6 seconds. With hindsight, the polarising filter would probably have helped, but I didn't have that with me.
I'm still quite happy with this - it's benefitted from a bit of tweaking in Photoshop, particularly getting the horizon straight! Next time I'll get there a bit earlier, and take some with the sun behind me maybe.
