I went a bit edgy on the post-processing for this photo, but I like the look. This day that I went out to the beach I forgot to bring my tripod adapter (this was the same day as when I took this photo). In order to get the long exposure I was going for I had to rest my camera on these rocks, which was a bit nerve racking because the water was starting to come in pretty quick and rough causing it to splash in nearby areas. You can't tell from the photo because I smoothed out the water with a long shutter speed (this was 2.5 seconds) but the seas were pretty rough at the time. But I overcame the challenges and even though it was resting on the rock it stayed steady and didn't get any motion blur in the picture.
