    Thanks Russell. I was using a 3 stop neutral density density
    filter to cut the light down for longer exposures and smooth the
    water out, and also had a 3 stop reverse graduated neutral
    density filter on top of that to tamet he exposure of the sky.

    That allowed me to shoot f/16, 1/15s, ISO100 for these.

    I've got some more I'll post shortly. It's a great spot.

    Thanks mate. Wasn't sure how it was going to turn out stacking
    the ND with the GND, but no vignetting and it did what I wanted
    it to.

    I used the free Hugin for the pano stitching. It's never let me
    down. So simple.

    Thanks mate. No, it's far north coast of NSW, just on the south
    side of Tweed River.

    Took a peek at your home page. There are some shots I really liked.


    Photo Art. the Salt lighthouse.

    Humanistic: Your son looks like a happy baby. Can't believe he grew that
    much since you first posted a shot of him. Enjoy.

    Ding-ding! In Port Stephens it's Fingal Bay, not Head.
    Sorry, got my geography upside down.

    Thanks mate. Was extremely happy to get this right "in camera"
    with filters. Sorry about not getting more foreground along the
    bottom. One of my regrets too. Kind of rushed this pano because
    the Sun was coming up and wanted to get some other shots of it.
