Using ND filter to create moody images

This morning, our Norway photo tour group had a shoot on the beach of fjord, with beautiful snow mountain landscapes in the background. I attached a Nisi 10-stop ND filter, to extend the shutter speed to 3 minutes, effectively smoothing the water and clouds, creating a moody and dreamy feel. The second image is a 1/6s exposure without filter, the sky and water looks more busy and cluttered. As you see, with the right subject and lighting condition, the ND filter is a great tool to enhance your landscape photos.
