I got a set of Cokin filters for my Pentax K100D, and decided to give them a try. This shot was the best of my attempts to use the 8x ND filter. I believe I was pushing a 6 second exposure here.

Very nice result with the ND filter. I can imagine you and a tripod IN the water doing that.

Thanks. And you're correct; I had to dip the tripod's feet in the water. Every time the water touched the tripod I kept thinking that eventually it will rust. Anyone know if the Slik AMT series is rust-resistant?

Very cool photo! Lots of enjoyable aspects about it. And the tripod, I'm sure rinsing it with non-salt water and drying it with a towel would help stop any problems.

Nice shot. For the tripod, I'd rinse with freshwater and dry it, as suggested, but then I'd spray the area with WD40, then wipe that off. Make sure to get the threads of the levelers and run them up and down a couple of times. Should prevent any rust.
