Nicely done Ziggy. I really like that shot/shots. Nice composition and nice lighting across the whole print. Not surprized that it's sold.
Sounds like a whole lot of work to me but your finished product made it worth while.

I took another look today, only because I like it a lot!

The five different shots, as opposed to five copies of one shot has softened the clouds, water and grasses with their slight movement between shots. Something you might not get from one shot.
In this case it's what turns a great photo into an exceptional one.

Good catch Ken,

Unlike a a cityscape or landscape of mountains where the objects are immovable, waterscapes tend to get a bit complicated in that, the water moves, clouds continue to move, the wind pushes the blades of dune grass- all of which may have a positive effect on an image. Most times, though, the movement just makes everything mushy looking.

I guess that's why I was happy with the results. There is enough sharpness to the image because the snow fence and the sand in the foreground was sharpened a bit using USM. I think that's what catches my eye. Then the rest of the image is relatively soft, due in part to movement.

It all seems to come together pretty well.
