Great image. Very skillful use of the ND filters. I image you wouldn't have had the nice balance exposure without them. Very well done.

Thanks everyone. Though I do manual layer blending in many of my photos, I still like to use ND filters to capture the best light balance I can in camera. Thanks again for all your kind comments. #7963717
