I love it, one hardly would notice that these are waves of the sea, it gets more an abstract look and it's what I love in it,to me this black pole(?) in the front that is not covered by the waves add a lot to the image and make it special!

Quite amazing. It looks like mist rolling in. The two-tone impression (or practically blue monochrome) is fantastic. You could maybe even have cropped just a tiny bit lower at the top. Is that a rock sticking up in front to the left?

For me you catch really well the motion. I am also trying to learn the technique

Very well done, the effect looks more like smoke but is very pleasing to the eye. I like the blue cast too, is it natural? I think you also got a nice diagonal layout in the rock pattern and the edge in the back.

The idea counts! Sometimes you have to experimentate, simply great!

Clever effect Geordie chappie....the tall spikey stone breaks the smoothness of the other rocks shown nicely. Maybe a little too blue, but easily correctable within PS.

You got the idea and the technique but not enough underexposed. And there's a cyan colorcasting too. Your Fujifilm is pretty much like my Fuji S602. Its maximum aperture is F/8 and I'd imagined this scene at best be captured at F/11 with Cloudy Balance. Polarizer doesn't work much here. It usually work best when it is behind you or the angle is about 90 between the subject and the sun.

Super shot. It looks like fog over the stones !!! The whole picture has got a kind of scary mood...

Wonderful - but I agree about the top right rock -I think you could crop this out to good effect making it a more square format pic. To my mind eye it makes the picture too heavy to the left and detracts from smooth transition of the flattened S like motion of the eye across the picture left to right, down towards the spiky rock and across to the right again. I think this is a marginal effect but worth running your eye over to make a decision. Whatever, this picture pulled me up and made me look! Great for a first attempt.
