Thanks for the kind comments.

Peter: No, I didn't use any polarizer here.
Oki I was just wondering as I got a lee filter, ND grad 0-6 a few weeks back and I was trying some seascapes as well and I thought they might help with the horizon/sky where they meet..I am going to the coast soon this week or next and will post you a couple shots here with the ND Grad on..
