Shot a nice sunset in Laguna Beach, California. You have to time the tide and sunset just right, or you get nothing or death. lol.

Used my Fuji X-T2, Fuji 10-24mm, and a 3-stop Reverse ND Grad.

I think this is really nice... a lot of motion, great colour, no halos, I think just really nice... maybe a little longer exposure could have helped smooth out the water?

Thanks. If I recall correctly, the water is at 1/10th, which is just where I like my seascapes to be, (1/6 to 1/10). Maybe a half a stop would be better, but I'm good as is. Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it.

I like the exposure where it is too. It's long enough that you get the silky effect and it looks intentional. If it were longer you would have a very nice smooth-silk effect but you would lose the sense of the dynamic water.
