Did you have an ND filter on your camera? I'm interested in trying out some exposure photography, but I'm a little lost as to where to start.

Yes, this would be with a 10-stop ND filter. Without it, my shutter speed would have only been around 1/10sec, which would not have given me the smooth water.

For sunrise/sunset shots, a 10-stop ND is a good place to start, and will give typically allow you to shoot with shutter speeds of 30 seconds to a few minutes. For night time shooting, a 4 to 6 stop ND would be better so you're not getting into multiple minute exposures, and for broad daylight shots, a 15-stop ND will work best.

Thank you for the detailed answer!
