    I'm beginning to sound like a broken record here :D , but we met with my good friend Alex @Alex_Apo@Alex_Apo for a coffee and the sky was so great (think of cloudless skies as a norm around here) that we couldn't resist taking some photos...

    All with the A7 / MD 24-35mm f/3.5 @ 24mm with an ND1000 filter

    Alex taking some photos without knowing I'm using him as an element in my shots, lol :p

    It was an amazing sunset!!! A7 and/or MD flares like crazy though :D

    And last, my favorite of the day!
    Alex and I disagreed about the branch in the water as a composition element (I liked it, he didn't :D ) but since it couldn't be removed (yes I tried :D ), I decided to use it in the end

    Had a really hard time with the last one as of what WB/colors to go for in post processing...

    Hope you like them :)

    Enjoying the LE work you and Alex are sharing. Land-locked in the desert, I have no opportunity to try this genre. So I'll have to live vicariously through you guys. ;)

    Thanks for all the kind comments :)

    @WNG@WNG Will, I'm visualizing desert in my mind now and I'm sure there are some great opportunities for long exposure photos there (think smooth sand, sandhills, texture on the sand, flora or rocks, cloudy skies etc :D )....or maybe I'm wrong :D

    #2 and #5 for me. I seem to learn towards your lines, shadows and textures of the foreground which then meet with textures, shadows, light of the clouds and the smokiness of shutter play over the ocean. The white boulder in the foreground sand of #2 grounds me as does the bush in the foreground of #5. Everything to the right half of #5 is very serene to me, enjoying your choices in post processing.
